Graphics card advice please

Hi I wonder if anyone would know what would be a good graphics card to get, not too expensive, that would enable Call Of Duty 4 and Medal Of Honor Airborne to play with reasonable to good settings. On both I have to have the settings low and still the graphics are rubbish and blocky. I currently have Nvidea Geforce 7600 GS installed, its what came with the pc. Thanks for your help

is it agp or pci express.

Uhmm sorry??? What does that mean?

it is the slot on the motherboard the graphics card fits into. agp cards do not fit into pci express slots and vice versa.

Thanks. Is there an easy way to find this out?

Have a look at your motherboard manual or do a search for the model number online

Run CPUZ click here It will tell you on the Mainboard tab at the bottom. It will say AGP or PCI-Express. I play these games and have a 7900GT which gives good quality and performance.

Thanks for that. It is PCI-Express. Would you recommend the 7900gt then or can I, without breaking the bank, get a better one?

Whats the budget? If its around £115 then go for a 8800GT
