6600GT is better than a 8400GS!

But isn't that card ancient? It's sort of like telling someone to upgrade to a 7900....

Although that would be a step up from the 6600GT.

@OP look for a HD3870 AGP card IIRC it's the last and fastest of the AGP line from either company.

the last AGP card I saw on Newegg was the ATI 4670, not as fast as the 3870 mentioned by mousemonkey but may be easier to find and not cost as much brand new

The used market (ebay) may be your best friend to find a moderately priced card

My Advice

1...IPIBL-LA motherboard cost =$54.99 it will run your 8400 gs
this simple motherboard will run even a
gtx series cards..

To: rolli59 6600GT is better than a 8400GS!

Toms hierarchy chart 6600GT 3 tiers above discrete 8400GS and 4 tiers above the mobility card you are comparing with
Based on these words at the end of the article it is considered a viable upgrade;
"You can use this hierarchy to compare the pricing between two cards, to see which one is a better deal, and also to determine if an upgrade is worthwhile. I don’t recommend upgrading your graphics card unless the replacement card is at least three tiers higher. Otherwise, the upgrade is somewhat parallel and you may not notice a worthwhile difference in performance."
