Basically I am looking to play some mmorpg, wanna make my old comp last a little longer. Any suggestions on a good AGP card to buy for under $100?

Thanks,
Mike

What kind of system is this for?

Unless you're running a Athlon 64 or a fast (>3GHz) P4 you shouldn't even bother with those cards, as you'd be throwing your money away into a bottleneck.

A 4650 is slightly slower but significantly cheaper and comes in well under $100


A $25 price difference after rebate between the two cards is not considered "significant".

Without a doubt I would buy the HD 4670.

Not considered "significant" by who? In this price range it is certainly quite significant and before rebates the HD4670 costs almost 40% more.
Furthermore on his processor even the HD4650 is overkill, the HD4670 is pointless.

^^^

Actually the HD 4670 costs 31.25% more than the HD 4650. Not quite 40%.

However, I suppose it is closer to 40% than 20%.

I said before rebates at which point it is 38.8%(35/90) more.

I have another card to throw into the mix.

I have an ageing AGP system. Back in 2008 I managed to get an HD3850 for £100 from Sapphire. Much better performance than the 3650 and certainly good value for money. I fail to see what a 4xxx card would offer that this one couldn't, except HD audio passthrough which isn't even supported for AGP interface.

If you can get this card now, its still a very good DirectX 10 card. Check on Toms Hardware for the ranking as well - still pretty respectable!!!
