Hi, I'm Geox and my video card went to a better world so I've decided to buy a new one. It should be not very expensive (max 200Euros 140Pounds 250Dollars) and decent for gaming. Hope i get lot's of ideas! :D Thnx, Geox

Look up your motherboard model on the manufacturer's website. If you don't know what model it is and who made it, download a program called CPU-Z (Google it) which will tell you.

I hope it's the right one (went into the graphic interface section)

AGP Version 2.0 Transfer rate 4x Max supported 4X Side band: not supported

Let's hope...:confused:

AGP 4x. Ouch...how old is your PC?

Anyway, for £140 I'd suggest either a GeForce 7600GS or 7600GT. You should be able to get the GS model for around £90, or the GT for about £130.

Well I believe AGP 8x was introduced in 2002. Which seems like a long time ago, but it could be a Pentium 4 or Athlon XP system (as they were first released around 1999-2000) which isn't too bad. On the flip side it could be like a Pentium 2 or something.

Apples and oranges perhaps, but my old Dell (Pentium 4 - Willamette) had AGP 4x, and it never seemed to bottleneck the 6600gt I had in it.

There's a max amount of bandwidth an agp 4x slot can handle, though I have no idea what that is nor how much the 7600gt can dish out. I certainly wouldn't recommend anything better than a 7600gs/gt for this pc though.
