AGP? your pretty much buggered then, lol i think you can get the kt800s in AGP but they arent half as good as PCI-e boards and obviously you could get a AM2 if it was PCI-e.

I would wait till you can get PCI-e AGP is a dead socket next upgrade youll need another new mobo which is a real pain, i dont know anyone who didnt regret not getting pci-e when they upgraded.

Yeah but upgrading straight away to a PCI-E is out of my price range. If i had the money I would get a PCI-E card but atm I dont so Im just gonna get a better processor and an AGP motherboard then when I get a PCI-E card i'll get a good motherboard to go with it.

What im saying thats just an expensive way to do it, your as well waiting and putting the money you have now in a savings account and then save up for the new stuff as performance boost from CPU and mobo upgrade isnt close to what you can get from a new gfx card especailly someone that plays as many games as you do. Patience is usually the best policy it works out cheaper in the long run.
