I have a p4c800-e deluxe and a ati 9800 pro graphics card. Is there a better graphics card for this motherboard. I know this is a outdated system by todays terms but this is my first pc I built.

Well, I think the most powerful card for AGP is the ATI HD4670. Don't know that there will be a more powerful card put out for that slot. Also, the HD 3870 is pretty powerful for AGP. But that requires a decent power supply. The HD 4670 sips power in comparison.

4650s are as strong as they come these days, you cant find a 3850 or 3870 on newegg anymore. That card is your best upgrade option for the money, it will blow your current card out of the water so if you intend to keep your system going for atleast another year it is arguably a worthwhile upgrade.

There are two HD 4670's on this page. Whether its worth a significant price premium over the 4650 is another question. I think Hunter's suggestion is solid.
