Good AGP Card

I have a little bit older system. I'm running the 64 bit RTM and everything is working well. I want to upgrade my video card but I dont know what I should get. My only problem is it has to be an AGP card. I don't really play the most updated games but I want the best card I can get for around 100 bucks. I just want to make sure it works well with 7.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

i think you may have a problem supplying the new card with enough power in your old rig.

please visit your user control panel (see user cp link near top of window) and fill in your system specs.

what wattage is your power supply unit?

the card that skunksmash suggested looks good, but needs a psu of at least 400w to be on the safe side.

I think the best one right now would be the ATI HD4650 w/ 1 GB DDR2.

You can pick them up for around $100.00 now.

Mickey may well be correct......

the card above is not really that power hungry, but you will need a ''6pin to molex'' converter.

if it wasn't for semantics, there wouldn't be a great deal of useful verbal (or written) communication...

and we don't want Arkman ordering the wrong thing now, do we?

How about a dual 4 pin molex to 8 (6x2) PCI-E adapter,

Dual Molex 4-Pin Convert to 2 PCI-Express 2.0 8(6+2)-pin -14(8+6)” length Products Model: MPCIE4628 [MPCIE4628] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Not that it matters as the card that skunksmash linked to comes with the necessary adapter.

As far as the power supply goes if the number here (48W for that 4650),

Video Card Comparison - GPUReview.com

then any decent 350W PSU should do.
