I have a very old PC that my parents didnt want anymore and I wanted to upgrade it so it performed a bit better. apart from upgrading the RAM i would like to upgrade the graphics card. It currently has a Radeon 9200 (SE-Slow Edition) and it seems to be a AGP pinset. Can anyone offer any advice to either the best i can get that is AGP or a more advanced graphics card (i know it's a bit outdated technology :))

Regards
Andy

AGP Graphics cards have not been produced since 2008 when PCI-E came out. It would be far better to invest in a new computer which has tripled to overall speed of your old computer. Newer graphics cards won't work and the 9200 is only slightly slower than the ATI 4650. the 4650 costs $120 so i think it would be wiser to put that money towards a new computer.
