Hey<br>
Having decided to completely rebuild my computer i ran into a problem. AGP or PCI Express? i realize that PCI Express is better but could i get more bang for the buck out of an AGP card? I have a budget of about 400-500 for a graphics card since i'm gonna use my old CPU. What i know i want so far is something with 512Mb of memory and that i'd really like to have it be ATI. If anyone could recomend a good card that would be great.

that should suit you nicely then....if you go PCIe....and yes you will get better bang for the buck with PCIe....

The 256mb x1900xt may restrict things a little at higher resolutions<br />
<br />
I would go for the x1900xt 512

Pretty....<br />
ya so i'm liking that Sapphire X1950XTX, i mean if i ever <i>did</i> get greedy i could use the Crossfire <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> . <br />
definately PCI Express then, i just really needed to figure out a gameplan for what i needed for a mother board.
