Just in case... My Computer Specs are:

Intel Pentium 4 Processor 519k 3.06GHz, 1 MB L2 Cache EM64T, Execute Disable Bit 533MHz FSB

512MB RAM 533MHz DDR2 SDRam Memory (i added a 1gb or 1024MB DDR2 ram)

ATI Radeon X300 SE PCI-Express Graphics card with TV-out port and 128MB DDR Video Memory (i don't know why it says PCI-express but i only found PCI bus terminals when i wanted to add my newly bought graphics card)

Pardon my raw information, i'm not really a technician so i copied these off the sticker of the side of my CPU.

so i was wondering which i should buy, and incase you were wondering i have a spare ATI radeon Powercolor X1050 AGP G-card.

i know my graphics card all sound lousy and not of the high-end of the market but i have a tight budget *sad face* i have a budget of 200-250 dollars and heres some choices or prices which i think are good~

1) Get MSI P4M890M-L AGP-terminal($99 MB only{which i think is motherboard only}) 2) Get the MSI P4M890M-L with E4600 C2D 2.4 Bundle ($304{i can save up}) 3) Buy MSI P4M900M2-L PCI-E Terminal($92 MB only) and get XFX 7100GS 512MB DDR2 ($70) -or- XFX GF 8500GT 512MB DDR2($135{again i can save =)}) 4) may be extremely tedious but if you REALLY have the time and WANT TO, Search for the prices and suggest =) VR-Zone Sim Lim Square Singapore Pricewatch

Personally, Wait till the 8800GT is AGP (RUMOURED ONLY), it should be fairly cheap, if it will even exist, which I doubt it will, They want to phase out AGP, not keep it alive heh. But you can get 8600GT(s) which while they'll still struggle with GRAW2 on highest, it should do nicely enough, and is a lot more powerful then the 8500GT
