What AGP Card

My PC is quite old and will be replaced in the next 12 months in the meantime I planning on changing my Graphics Card, this is the problem I have no idea of where to start.

Below is my PC's Spec:

P4 3.2Ghz Prescott
2GB DDR2 400 PC3200
High End Asus Motherboard - Dual DDR, S-ATA, 8XAGP, 5PCI
2 X 80GB Hard Disk
350Watt PSU might be 400watt

The graphics card is an old 128mb GeForce FX5200 - AGP

And its this I want to replace, considering my limited 350watt PSU what AGP card would be best new or secondhand?

Thanks

Given that you're replacing the system inside 12 months - and given that new systems won't have AGP slots, so your new card will be redundant - and given that a significantly better card may require a new PSU.

Then - I would question whether it's even worth bothering.

If you're going to keep your present system for, say 3 years - then it might be worth it - depending on what a new card will give you over what you have now. Why do you want a new card?

I agree with DieSse if you want to make a significant change you are going to have to upgrade you PSU as well...
