the motherboard is an 810lmr not an 81lmr

If your 9200se works well then it might be wise to look for another ATI card such as a 9600xt or pro. Both of These will be significantly faster than your current card.

do you know any reliable sites that have those 2 on a good price

These are the two I normally use,

MicroDirect click here

PlanetMicro click here

There is a 9700pro at PlanetMicro for £94 click here which is an excellent card.Make sure you avoid the 9600se model as this is not a very big step up from what you already have .

click here and click here the second link is for the 9800 pro, the lite edition is exactly the same as the more expensive edition, the only difference is it doesn't come with the games bundle which you probably wouldn't want anyway and its plain boxed, but its the same card.click here

Here's a better price for a 9700PRO and the 9800PRO click here

A lot of members recommend this company.

yes but will any of these cards work on my motherboard?

Majin_Vegetto007, if your AGP slot is capable of running at at least x4, then any of the above cards should run fine. The above cards will run at x8, but there's not normally a noticable difference when running games at the slower bandwidth.

You haven't mentioned what CPU you have. Looking at the specs for your board it will be an older Athlon or a Duron. A thing to bear in mind is that an older CPU would be a limiting factor in how well these cards perform.
