    upgrade

    I have one (1) 1.5v 4x agp slot on my pc, and I am wondering if anyone can tell me my next (best) step up from an Integrated NVIDIA GeForce2 Graphics card, so that I can get in on online games like Doom3, CounterStrike, etc..

    welcome Johny. First of all, don't get Doom3 It is not that good
    Many cards come in different flavors even thought they have the same GPU. Probably the FX cards for AGP. There might be a couple of them that require an extra connection (usually a molex).
    What is your power supply rating?
    I am not familiar with ATI numbering, but there are a lot of options too

    Ohh, a point Nate made me remember, depending on the rest of the PC how high you want to go with the video card. A card 400 dollars is too much for a PC that is 1000 retail or 500 built. I make great PCs for 500
    Johnny could you post a quick list of your PC hardware?
    there are aplicatons like Belarc Advisory that can create a report for you even
