I suggest you get the VISIONTEK Xtasy 5632 GEFORCE2 GTS-V for $48 bucks at I would say that the best you can get for under $60. Plus you can survive through most games with it. Most graphic cards are backward compatible, so if it supports 4x agp then it will probably do 1x fine. I don't think it will be a problem. Are u going to use the graphic card for game or what?

Humm........ the modest budget (lose some money in the stock market right? j/k) Well I dunno, what card do you have right now, cause I'd be leaning towards a Radeon 32MB DDR. The GF2MX400 would be my second choice. I'm not really sure whether these are compatible with AGP 1X but I'm pretty sure they are. I'll leave that up to someone else.

That GTS-V is OEM, and I've heard some not so great things about them, but yeah that would be a great choice. I never knew they sold for so low.

I don't see the problem with OEM. Afterall you only need the graphic card itself.

I think Original Equipment Maufacturer. Basically straight from the factory I'm thinking.

There is no such thing as an AGP1x board to my knowlege, even the LX chipset supported AGP2x. But any card should be able to run at AGP1x, which is to my knowlege a "safe mode" for problematic AGP, can you say VIA?

What's the frequency, Kenneth?
