I'm looking to upgrade my Dimension 4600 from a NVIDIA 5200 128mb AGB GPU. I can't really afford a new computer or a new MOBO, and I'm trying to get a little more time out of my computer with a new GPU.
I have a Pentium 4 2.4, 1.2gigs of RAM, and only AGP and reg. PCI slots
I've been looking around various forums and others sights for the best deal. I want a GPU good enough for games (the primary reason why I'm getting a new one) but I really only want to spend between $65-$100.
I'm not expecting to run any games at max, especially more recent games. But, I'm hoping get a GPU from which I can get a noticeable improvement in my games compared to my old 5200. I'm not looking to stick with the rig for too much longs, so paying much more than $100 doesn't seem worth it. I'd only be willing to pay up to $150 if it's significantly better than my other choices for upgrade.
So far I think that I've narrowed it down to these cards at 512mb
Right i had a amd 64x arch mobo with the cpu and the best agp card i ever had was 7200GT BFG SERIES (in my games back then i had 300 fps)
But if you are looking gp for certain reasons like low profile, i would get the 8500GT
But if you want performance (tho im worryied @ bottelnecking for you), i would suggest to go to the XFX/Fatailty site's as that company has always stuck with agp, until 2008 that is, as agp once was faster than pci-e
Anyways there site offers realy good agp cards. enjoy brav!
