    From what I've read AGP is the way to go for a video card. Since there are alot more AGP cards then PCI. Which is a good card? I don't have $ 500.00 for a good card, but I want one that will hold up and be a good card. It's going on an Asus P4C 800E-Deluxe mobo. It has to withstand the speeds of overclocking. Thanks.

    I'm looking at the Radeon 9600 XT Video Card (128MB, AGP 8X, 2D/3D w/TV-Out) but what I've read about this card users have complaints about it. It costs $ 180.00

    It's a very nice card. I own a Sapphire 9600 XT, I love it...but I would buy a Raedon 9600XT because the Sapphire doesnt come with a heat sensor like Radeon models...:thumbs do
