Best AGP Video Card?
 
I am upgrading an old system to give to a friend as a Christmas present. What is the best AGP card i can get for todays gaming; Crysis, MMO's, CoD4 and Newer such games. Also i am looking for a good set of Ram thats alil old school, 184 pin DDR 400, I saw some G-Skill on newegg, but still wondering if i am missing any really good deals.

for crysis? if the board is running AGP not pcie x16, most likely the computer cant handle it.

What are the specs? your probally better off upgrading totally

I'm not real knowledgeable in ATi card's but I think the best Nvidia Card for AGP 4x/8x would be the 7900GS.

Newegg.com - XFX PVT71KUDL3 GeForce 7900GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail

best performing card is:
Newegg.com - GECUBE HX195XTGA3-D3 (R) Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 8X HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail

DX10 Card:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100219L Radeon HD 2600XT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 AGP 8X HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail

but performs like a 7600GS so its pretty much rubbish.

how much ram do you need exacly?

and unless you got a decent dual core comp, i wouldn't suggest upgrading it.

the X1950XT by a good amount..the 7950GT is the next closest.

It uses the same watts as an 8800GTS really.
