Looking to upgrade my old system with a new graphics card and a suitable 450-550w psu, here are my system specs,

http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/Suppor...

Changed 1 stick of faulty ram so it has 1.5gb of ram now.

I know it's a dinosaur pc and I should buy a new one, but it works fine and does everything I need right now except play newer games, plus I can't afford a new one so without getting into the whole bin the AGP debate can somebody tell me before I splash some cash, will this system run a radeon hd3850 512mb ddr3 agp card or a 7600gt 256mb or something similar, if not what should I get to improve on the current fx5500 256mb card.

many thanks in advance.

the 3850 will work. It will be a bit bottlenecked by your cpu but it will definitely play games better.

Powercolor showed a 4670 in AGP flavour at cebit recently but i dont think its in production yet. Failing that the 3850 is your best bet.

GF7600GT's are rare now, so expect to pay the same as the Radeon 3850 which is about 2 -3 times as powerful.

Thanks for the replies, a 3850 it is.

you'll be happy with a 3850. it's getting a bit old now, but it can still handle the newer games at lower resolution, and it's exponentially better than the 7600GT. i had a 7600GT, and it was very disappointing...
