If its not then get rid of it. Dont let a agp video card hold back on your upgrade to a new pc. If your wanting a new pc now you do not want agp!!!
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Dual Core Processor
CORSAIR ValueSelect 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR
ABIT KN8 Ultra Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard ***(IF you do not ever need sli support)***
ABIT KN8 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard ***(If you ever need sli support)***
Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-480 BLUE 480W Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar SE 250GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
PLEXTOR Beige IDE DVD Burner
I listed 2 motherboards, pick whichever meets your needs if you want sli or not.
You will need a case and an operating system also.
I always let the customer pick out there case.
total came to $930 using the sli motherboard and $2 less using the non sli motherboard without shipping ect..
You can find a case for under $70 to meet your budget. Just pick up an operating system at your local store. Win xp or the new win xp 64 bit. The 64bit os is more..
Thats an awesome price for that much of a machine. It has the amd dual core x2. You might want to get an nvidia video card to match it in the near future.

jrm20 is right get rid of that card I paid 100 bucks for that card over a year ago i am sure it ain't worth 50 right now even though the retailers may want more.
You have to go pci express with any new system

Id get what I listed above then go for a nvidia 6800gs to go along with it. The 6800gs is really a great priced card, I dont see how they sell it for $209. Look on newegg if you want to see it. If you want more video card power go for a geforce 7800 gt or gtx. 7800 gt is only $299 average. 7800 gtx is $450-$460 average for 256 mb versions.
If you got a 6800gs which would be fine for you, the cost of the pc would be the $930 from before + $209 for the 6800gs. $1139 is not bad at all FUM. Add shipping also.

Processor amd dual core x2 3800+
Power supply, I changed it to an sli certified power supply in case you ever wanted to get 2 nvidia video cards.
Video card 6800gs
Case, aspire xcruise
Samsung Lcd 8ms monitor
5.1 surround sound by logitech (best you can get to stay under the budget)
mouse and keyboard
I spend a extra long time configuring this for you and trying to get everything to stay under the budget. Its really hard to stay under $1,500 with all of this stuff and with shipping also. I dont know how much shipping will be but without shipping it came around $1,432.72
The mouse and keyboard are cheap but it will match your aspire case and stay under the budget. I was starting to run out of funds for the budget......
I hope your happy, that is the best I can do for all of these parts. Your getting alot of top end hardware believe me, for under $1500.
