CSS and HL2 are about equal

Well CSS on low mx440 settings looks a bit like the origional CS with custom models on high

Yeah, CS is nothing too special. It just is fun!

Im not so sure you want PCI. It is the biggest bottleneck a video card can have. You are hearing this from someone who only has a PCI slot, I am very disappointed with it. Even thought it is a 5600 w/ 256mb of ram, I get no more than 11 fps in doom 3 on lowest settings. Here is a great AGP card that fits your price range:

I'll keep an eye out when I have more money for a AGP 4x/8x card. Maybe a MX440 or a 4000. But for now, to keep my backup comp running well, I'll stick with the PCI MX. I mean, it can't be worse than onboard, that's for sure, LOL.

I can't remember if I asked this, I don't recall, but...
Is a PCI MX400/440 comparable with a plain AGP 8x 5200?
