hi,

i currently have an old motherboard with only pci. i'm planning on upgrading the video card later this year. i was wondering if i should stick with my current motherboard and buy a pci 9500gt 1gb or buy a motherboard with agp and buy an agp card. my processor runs on s478 and i do not want to buy a new processor and to my knowledge there is no pci-e s478 motherboard. if i were to buy the agp card should i buy the HIS H465F1GHA which is a 1gb ddr3 ati 4650 or the POWERCOLOR PCS Series AG4670 1GBK3-PV2 a hd 4670 1gb ddr3

thanks in advance
regards,
austin

Are you on a very tight budget?

Cause i think you will better with a whole new system...

AGP is also an old technology, it's not worth at all to upgrade.
What are you gonna do with this computer?

the only difference i can see beetween the hd4650 and hd4670 is that that the 4650 core clock:500mhz mem clock:1300 4670 core clock:650mhz mem clock:1600mhz

i think i could get the 4650 and just overclock it so it's like the 4670

Make sure you install the OS in your SSD, your computer will boot faster... :D
