maybe call local pc shops and see if they have any used/ unwanted agp cards they could part with too.


THIS:

my friend owns a PC shop and they have a bin of AGP cards for 5 bucks each but only problem is the fastest one is a riva TNT and that's slower than the MX440 buy a huge margin so lol not a good rout

More ideally, a Radeon 9700/9800 or GeForce 6600 of some flavor (again, sans SE and LE versions) should be good.

i did find a cheap XFX 6600 AGP card so if i can manage to sell the 8800 I'll buy it

NVM it was dead

The Radeon 9000 series mostly supported DirectX 9. The R3xx series chips all did, and they were the first GPUs to do so, and did so better than nVidia's GeForce FX series. It was just the Radeon 9000, 9100, 9200, and 9250 chips that weren't DirectX 9, as they were actually R2xx series chips. ATi did with it's lower numbered Radeon 9000 series what nVidia did with the GeForce 4 MX440, where it wasn't a "real" GeForce 4.

OP I've got a GTX 7800 that I'll give you if you pay the shipping. It stacks up pretty nice against the 9200SE http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=391&card2=310. Only catch is it's a PCI-E X16 card ... did you say you need AGP?

There's no way to be sure. I'd pass on it. One infamous issue of the Radeon 9000 series (at least the higher end ones) seemed to be overheating/artifacting death after some years

It's actually slower than an MX440, the only thing it has over it is shaders.

I had an MX420 and it was actually a downgrade when I went to the 9200SE.

One way i found to be working is to remove the fan and heatsink.Make sure u clean the gpu with something like alcohol.Put new thermal paste on and put back the heatsink.Make sure the fan still runs smoothly if not replace with alternitive fan.

That's probably the best you'll find for the price. It's not quite $9.99, but it looks/is said to be nearly brand new, so if you can gather up the small extra, it's probably the best you'll find. It should be pretty ideal for the game.
