I currently have a home PC that has a GeForce (something) with 128 MB RAM. I would like to upgrade to at least 256. But I use this on my DLP tv. So here are my guidlines:
-AGP
-least 256 RAM
-Has to have HD output

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

The Radeon X1600 Pro might be what you're looking for. Usually around £70, with 256mb memory, HD output and it's AGP.

A higher-end alternative is the X1950 card, with a price tag of usually around £110-120.

Is there a better name over other ones. Like should I just be looking for the Radeon's?

This is usually down to preference - some people prefer NVidia's, others prefer Radeon's. I'm more of an NVidia guy, although I do think I'll be going with one of the new DirectX10 Radeon cards when they come out.
I guess it all really does come down to your own preference and how much you've got to spend.
