I was given a pc with the Intel 845 EBT mobo, 2 GM RAM, 1.8 GHZ P4. I'd like to upgrade the video card spending up to about $60. I'll also buy used. I'm confused by what bus interface I should be looking for? AGP or PCI for best output today. What I can't seem to find is what speed AGP or PCI this mobo has. Any suggestions for cards or what interfaces I have so I can shop for the right card?
I'm not Gamer...Thanks for the suggestions though. After learning more about the AGP bus and this mobo, I bought an ATI 9600XT w/256mb. Your links were also helpful in my knowledge quest. I was mostly seeking a DVI port for the monitor I had and figured anything was better than the 32MB NViada card it had. I found the driver and the card works, although I have no way to really judge how well. But it works fine for office apps at the native resolution of my 19" monitor.
