You don't say what your last graphics card was but have a look here.

This will at least start you off in your search for a new card.

According to Tom's Hardware Guide the best value for money AGP card from Nvidia is the 7600GT. There's a 7800GS, but it costs a lot more for little or no improvement in performance.

THG also mentions an AGP version of ATI's X1950 pro which is due for release any minute now. It will cost more, but for an AGP system it will be the fastest thing you can buy

Looks like a bargain for anyone wanting to extend the life of an AGP system

Thanks for response, sorry for delay, trying to sort out on your link what cards are pci or agp think there mostly new generation cards.
Old card was an FX 5950 Ultra served me well.

Have tended to stick with nVidia cards over time so after your comments and reading a review have decided on a 7600GT, cheers.

Prefer to go with new, and your link only has ATI cards, but thanks for your interest.

Regards Bob
