Have alook on ebay, you can get a bargain on there, I suggest keeping away from used cards though, sometimes you may get ripped off by buying a card that has its own mind and you will get nothing but hassle from the start!

Also dabs.com have good prices and range!

Thats not a bad card, only 128-bit but I have the X1650pro and it aint as bad as people make out!

A 256-bit card will cost more but perform better!

I would defo recommend ati though over nvidia!

yes the x850pro or xt line is nice....no sm3 tho..but what games really have the sm3? the x850line is fast and 256mb/256bit instead of 256mb/128bit like some of the other suggestions are....more speed is what you need and the x850 line will give it...id find a x850pro and mod it to the x850xt with the full 16pp.....and i see they go for around $125 us..best bang for your AGP buck is the x850pro....:rockout:
