I am looking to get a new video card(currently i have an NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX420).  The computer is about 2.5 years old so it definitely does not have PCI-E cards.  I was wondering whether I should go for the ATI X850 for AGP or PCI-E.  Would my computer even support AGP 4x/8x?  Also would the NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX with SLi be better?  If you need more information about my computer I'll be happy to find it for you.

If you want to know your maximum AGP speed you'll need a program like Everest or SiSoft Sandra.

The difference between 4x and 8x is minimal, so don't worry about that. Your computer will most likely support 4x, and I advice a GF660GT, as that card should be able to max out your computer. An X850 is complete overkill for 2.5 year old computers, that money is better spent elsewehere.

i just bought a 6600gt and i like it a lot. You seem to have about the same situation as i do as far as computer specs go so i would recomend the 6600gt i bought one from newegg.com  it was $164.00 USD and has a $15usd rebate so it was a good deal and it is from EVGA. Those more expensive cards will be overkill like mentioned before
