hey, i currently have a 9550 radeon in my machine and its doing ok... i get some nooby 66 fps overclock at around 380mhz<br />
<br />
now most of the games i have are pretty demanding in gpu power so is there any cheap around free to 200$ card that can get lots of fps just at normal stock speed?<br />
<br />
thanks in advanced

Hi, <br />
<br />
EDIT: ok, you did..thank you <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
You have an AGP interface, and I think something like an 7600GT is your best pick at the top of your budget (that is, if they're in stock):<br />

<br />
A bit cheaper, and still good, the 7600GS:<br />

<br />
And the cheapest I would recommend that's a good upgrade from what you have is the 6600GT:<br />

I'd get the 6600GT over the 7600GS (i've owned both), but the 7600GT over both. Wow out of stock already... Go with the 7600GT.

</div>the new card will have a DVI -> VGA converter so you can still use your old monitor.

As you can see, some do have the VGA connector (it's blue), and some lack that connector. If they lack the connector, an adapter plug is included in any retail card. (not sure about OEM versions, so it's better to get retail)
