I have an Asus P4C800-E with an Intel 3.2Ghz processor 2GB of RAM running Windows XP Pro. I'm not planning to upgrade the MB. I'm looking for the best preforming AGP 8X video card. Any ideas???

Save your money and put it towards a new system. I know you said that you don't want to change the motherboard, but throwing any more money at that old rig just isn't worth it. The $120 you'd spend on that new AGP card would go a long way towards buying you a new motherboard and processor. For example, $150 would get you an Athlon X2 5000+ (dual core and many times faster than your current CPU), a 780G motherboard (with integrated graphics likely better than what you currently have), and 2 GB of DDR2-800. This would also provide you with an upgrade path to future processors and modern pci express-based graphics cards.

If I spend $90 to $120 bucks on a video/graphics card it's a lot less than buying a new MB, CPU, RAM & a graphics card. I'm not a real serious gamer I just want to max out this system...

Thank You

HD 3850 is the best one if your power supply can handle it. Most PSUs on older machines can't.

If not, go for the 4670. It's almost as good and doesn't use much power or require an 8-pin connector.
