    Hey.. I'm thinking about upgrading my Graphics card as my 9600xt is becoming laggish.. and quite frankly I want better gaming performance. I'm still with Agp, evidently.. I can't afford a full system upgrade, and I want to wait a year or two before getting a new system anyway. I was thinking of the Geforce 7600Gs/Gt for agp..

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    The 1950Pro AGP is on pre order in the UK and will arrive at one stockist next week (according to them) but to be honest it will bottleneck on your system so you will probably only use about 75% of it's potential, with that in mind I would probably go for the 1650Pro which is cheaper, has better specs/performance than the Nvidia 76xx series AGP cards and will probably not bottleneck on your system, plus if its really a "stop gap" card then it will provide a better balance and you will see a huge difference over your current card.
