Welcome to furms!

With that CPU, the 2600 XT is the best you'd want to get. Anything more will be very bottlenecked by the platform.
If you are in the US, you can buy from Newegg.com.

That wont work 2600xt. He has an AGP board with x4. that P4 1.8 even if he could use that card would be a HUGE bottle neck. he has an ^ year old platform. It will be hard to say if a fairly good agp card will work with such an outdated system. If you can find a 9600-9700 card still, they are 8x though but should work. As for that game i am wondering what its min. is? might be that nothing you can do to bring it to min specs even with an agp upgrade. If am 9600 ati card can be found it should be cheep( shipping will be more than its worth). Can you ebay in your country? I have about 3 of those old cards around here sitting in a parts box, even an old 9800 pro.

My country is Turkey. I can buy items from Ebay and Newegg.com both !

I looked Newegg.com and could find cards but 4x/8x which is it? My motherboard is supports 4x cards.. I will change completely but I need one or two months for this. So I wanna buy an graphic card for cheap of course!

Most AGP cards are compatible with either 4x or 8x.
You can choose a slower card than the ones I indicated if you like.
The important thing is that your power supply has to support the upgrade.
Please tell us about the power supply.

I have a 7600gs agp that runs on a p4@2.4ghz. I'm sure the cpu still bottlenecks it, so any 7 series card would work too.

I will check power supply. But I think it is 250-300W certainly..

:@ evongugg, I need a cheap card.. This is 99 $ I can bring Mobo + Graphic Card (PCI) + One Ram with 100 $ if I want..

I will wait on your check of the power supply.
Your power supply seems like it is too small to support a new video card.

I told you I need a basic card for only two months sir.
Like FX5500 or 9500 ect.
June 26, 2008 5:10:23 PM

I will think thanks.

FX5500 or Geforce 6200 should be adequate for this:

But where can I buy it?
June 27, 2008 4:40:02 PM

If you're in Turkey, I have no idea. eBay might be helpful in finding a good deal.
June 27, 2008 4:58:20 PM

I'd go X1600 PRO with this one... or a 6600 GT. Whatever's cheapest.
