what's the best AGP 8x card that i can run without it being limited/wasted due to CPU limits? found some on www.compusa.com with double/triple the core/memory MHZ of my 9550 and arent that much. dont wanna spend alot cause im gonna build a new pc within a few months.

PC Specs:

Model: Compaq Presario SR1563CL
MB: Asus K8S-LA (is the number printed on middle of board so i guess that's the model?)
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3400+
RAM: 1.5GB PC3200 DDR Ram (may buy 2nd 1gb stick for 2GB if it helps)

how much of an increase would it be over the radeon 9550? and would getting my ram to 2gb help at all or no?

It would be quite an upgrade. There's no specific amount one can say, just that it'd be quite satisfactory.
