Replacement for Radeon 9800 Pro

Hey all,

My ATI Radeon 9800 Pro just died on me.

I currently replaced the card temporarily with a Geforce MX440.

Yes my computer is old, but I'd like to just replace the card and keep it running. All of the other components are in mint condition.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Soon

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Internet, Hulu, Light gaming (Old school stuff....SC, CS, Command and Conquer)

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Antec TruBlue 480W, Radeon 9800 Pro

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: P4 Northwood, 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Any reputable/reliable site.

PARTS PREFERENCES: None

OVERCLOCKING: NO SLI OR CROSSFIRE: NO

MONITOR RESOLUTION: At least 1024x768

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:
(e.g.: Need to have better than stock cooling; Want a card with a lifetime warranty; Must run Crysis with full AA on a three-display setup, etc.)

Anyway... I'm looking to get a card that is on par or slightly superior to the 9800. I can easily go with the 9800 but I want to field some suggestions.

My budget is anything below 60 dollars.

I do realize that AGP cards are NOT cheap. I've done some searching on eBay and Craigslist so I have a sense of the price.

What is a good card at a reasonable price?

Thanks!

  1. Are you kidding about running Crysis with full AA with a single core processor???
  2. Yup, you can't run crysis with a decent quality with your current setup...
    Even at 1024x768 , you must lowering the game setting to get an acceptable gameplay...
  3. Forget Crysis.

    Save up money for a complete system upgrade.

    Good news is Crysis 2 will have lower system requirements. Bad news, your current system will probably not be able to run it well enough.
