    If you only have agp4x i recommend the geforce 6200 256mb. The speed is just too low. 6200 cost about 40 quid

    I would rather save another 10 bucks than wasting 100 on a 6200.

    I know it because I had it before.

    Well since his is AGP 4x it probably wouldn't cost $100...i would suggest getting the 6600 or the 6800 if you really needed the new graphics card.

    6600 is 300/500 mhz
    6800 is only 128mb ddr, and 375/700 mhz only

    While 6600gt is 500/900 mhz and 128mb DDR3, same 8 pipelines as 6800 agp.

    so 6600gt beats 6200,6800, and 256mb 6600.

    Dont compare cards by the clock frequencies of the cores... the 6800 had a different core than the 6600.

    Plus since he has only an AGP 4x system, it prolly is pointless for him to get anything better than the 9800. I bet he has a slow assed cpu, so getting a video card faster than a 9800pro would be pointless.
    Intel cpu's are clocked at 3.8Ghz, AMD's are clocked ad 2.0-2.4 for the most part.
    yet AMD pwnz the shit out of intel.

    Go for 1 of these:

    nVidia GeForce 6600 GT
    nVidia GeForce 6800
    ATI Radeon 9600 PRO
    ATI Radeon 9800 PRO

    I'd recommend the 6600 or 6800 though.

    Also, for those who keep recommending him to get a new Mobo, it'd also require a new Processor, as it'll be a new Socket type, and then go a new Hard-Drive, as he probably atm has ATA133, and will have to go to SATA.

    So basically, the motherboard, hence the name, the main base of the whole system of a Computer, it leads and adds up to almost buying a new part of everything.
