Hey guys, I'm looking to upgrade my old AGP system, cause i don't have enough spare cash to switch to PCI-E... Anyway...

Currently I have a Radeon x800xt. If someone has something like a 1950pro/xt they want to get rid of lemme know.

Specs on my system in case someone wants to tell me if a card like that will be bottlenecked by the CPU

P4 3.0(prescott)
1.5g ddr400 ram
x800xt

Thanks

Not to be an ass, but upgrading an AGP video card is throwing money away.

Just save up for a while and you can get a decent new dual core cpu, motherboard, ram and pci-e card for $500 or less and just recycle the rest of your current parts.

You're totally right, and that is sort of my plan. I just wanted something to hold me over until I can save up enough to get a whole new system.

If I could get a 1950pro for <$100 though that would be nice because currently I can't play some games(Bioshock)due to my old cards lack of SM3.0 support, and playing eq2 is kind of painful on anything other than very high performance.

Anyway thanks for your advice :)
