Well, it really depends on what you are willing to spend. ATI, has recently released the x1650 pro 512 mb AGP graphics card which is probably the best and last AGP graphics card that will be released on the market from the ATI camp and probably the same for nVidia as the move to PCI-E is pretty much complete. However that being said, there are good AGP cards still out there. The ATI x1300 pro 256 mb is a low cost low end gaming card. On the nVidia side the 7600 and 7800 come in AGP. However since I am not a big nVidia card user someone else would have to give you more info on those. I would recommend that going with the x1650 pro 512 AGP for $249 or less depending where you get it, is the best card you can get as far as AGP goes.

7800GS or X1650pro.

Just my 2 cents there. What is really amazing is the amount of info you provided- HOLY SMOKES you didn't leave anything out.

ATI might have released the AGP x1950 as well not sure if it is out or not though.

A good place besides AMD/ATI to look is Sapphire.com or just Sapphire. Ya I am an ATI guy too.
