Hi, my current graphics card (Radeon 9200SE Atlantis) went ka-poot. I have a found 2 cheap replacement/upgrades, a GeForce FX 5200 PCI, and a GeForce 6200 AGP. Fist of all I need to know if they will work with my Motherboard, a Biostar P4TSV with 3xPCI slots and 1xAGP slot. Second, I would like an opinion on whether to get PCI or AGP (They're both the same price.)

does the pc have any onboard graphics? if so don't bother, just save the money on new system (and by the sounds of it you need one)

if it doesn't, get the cheapest pci graphics you can find

i say this because your system won't be able to play newer games even with the best GPU you could stick in there

Getting a new system is probably the best option. Any money spent on upgrading that will go to waste i'm afraid

AGP is way faster.. choose it anyways, PCI slots can be used for other things, AGP is the Accelerated Graphics Port, its meant for a graphics card.
