Well I can't really afford a new system, so I thought I'd look for the best 'old school' AGP card.
Alright, it won't run Crysis and the like, but it's Pixel Shader 3.0 and has 512MB memory, so it'll at least run the newer games (albeit on low settings!).
Would be fine for things like Left 4 Dead, etc :]
I expect this'll be voted cold because it's not good enough for the trolls quad core PC's. Oh well..
