Well, it should be AGP 8X or PCI-Express. Not AVG


You need a card that works for gaming. Sometimes memory doesn't even matter. Plus make sure it's got a heatsink on it.

overal quality of the card, how loud the cooling is, how well it stacks up against different cards in the same price range, how fast the connection is(eg agp8x<pci x-16) can it do what you need, user reviews, price. here is a good example. compare all of these cards . you will notice in the first 2 the more expensive card outpreforms the cheaper one, but in the second set, the cheaper one outpreforms the expensive one. all cards are almost identical, pcix16 256mb 400mhz ramdac 1dvi 1 dsub

EDIT: link bad...lemme see what i can do
