Can someone please tell me what is a good graphics card for me as I want to replace my Geforce 2. My mobo only has 4x AGP. Will this be a problem? Also should I go for 64mb or 128mb version? Is there a big difference in performance?

need more details ie.. what will you use the card for... what is your price range... what additional things will you like your card to have.. what resolution do you expect to be playing at ?
the additional memory just allows more textures to be loaded to your memory... ie.. you have better frame rates @ higher resolutions and with AA and AF turned on as well you have better frame rates.. or should be smoother frame rates...
The new 8X cards will run fine in 4X AGP mobo's and so far there is no real speed difference with 8X anyway. At this point in time no games take advantage of 128m cards and some 64m cards actually benchmark a little better (they usually have faster memory). But that should change in the future. Avoid Nvidia MX cards if you plan on gaming.
That said, unless you want state of the art, you can get Nvidia TI4200 128m class cards for less than $120 that work well. These can be easily overclocked to almost TI4600 specs. I'm sure the ATI crowd can suggest similiar solutions.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
