you will have to post what else you have in your PC, it makes all the difference in the world. Please post the brand name and model for the following, if its a dell or HP or something like that, please post the model number of it:

Processor
Motherboard
RAM
Power Supply
Case

It sounds like you have an AGP slot on your mobo which unfortunately doesn't leave you many options. You may want to google an Ati 3870 or something as I think it may have been the fastest AGP card although i'll stand corrected.

Hey man, to be precise you need a whole new build.....none of those parts can run games of this age
you can still pull some extra distance by adding a agp hd4xxx series card but your cpu will just bottleneck....

I suggest just don't waste any money behind that rig........gather some more buck and get a new build....

there is an AGP 4650 GPU that you can buy but it will not benefit you much. You need to start from scratch, that Pentium 4 is rather old and will not handle any games from the last few years...

Thanks for the feedback, by saying whole new build, do you mean a new PC or upgrade all the components?

If so what do I need to get that won't cost an arm an a leg?

not all components....you can cut off your HDD and ROM to save some money but more or less it's a whole new build...

just tell me your budget....

ok, take a spec required like

duo 3.2 ghz
2gb of ram
512mb nvidia geforce 9800.

Would i really need a new pc to get it to that standard??

Absolutley, i would say that a full replacement of the PC would be required, even the hard drive and DVD drive will be a little on the older side in your current PC.

If buying new, please try and get a custom-built PC as opposed to a dell or HP as usually they leave no room for future upgrades.

Go for an i3 or an i5 rig if you have the budget.

Intel is always good for performance but if you have budget restrictions amd is always the first choice...........

and if you are planing for 9800 i would suggest the HD4850 (HD4870 if possible) it has better performance with same price........
