    What Graphics Card

    I am looking to upgrade my graphics card. I currently have a NVIDIA GeForce

    FX 5900XT. While this is a pretty good card it struggles with some of the newer games like Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07. Can anyone recommend a mid priced better performance card (AGP)



    Thanks



    John

    A 7600GT of some description would probably be your best bet for that kind of price.

    Get yourself along to your local PC World where they have been selling some pretty good AGP and PCI Express Graphics Cards now for some time. I picked up a 256MB 76xx PCI-E for £139!

    As mentioned above a 7600GT sounds about right for you, out of interest what CPU & memory setup do you have? You may want to hold off investing in an AGP graphics card and save up a bit more and get yourself a new mainboard cpu and possibly ram as well as a PCI express graphics card. Your games might get bottle necked by your current cpu and you will need to upgrade your cpu & mainboard anyway but will probaly end up needing the change to PCI express.
