Hi, my GPU (Geforce FX 5600) on my old PC died a while back. I've been using a Radeon 9600 since but it's garbage. Was wondering if anyone knew what's the best AGP card availible for my rig. It's a P4PE mobo with 2.54 GHz CPU and 1.5 Gb of DDR RAM.

the HD 4670 or the HD 3870 (if you can find it) are the best AGP cards out.

The AGP versions of those cards are also above $100. If you could honestly wait, and save up $200, then your best bet is a cheap Athlon II Mobo with a pci-e x16 slot (40-60$), an HD4670 for $70, and an athlon II dual-core (245) for $70. However, upgrading a motherboard, you will need better memory, so also account $20 for a gigabyte of DDR2.
