    Ok based on this thread:

    http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=1252204

    I've went ahead and pulled out my existing video card and now i'm back to some S3 Savage 32mb integrated graphics..

    it works fine with no garbled graphics but everything looks a bit blurry not as crisp as before. so i'm looking to buy a new video card. something pretty cheap I don't do any 3D gaming or anything, maybe some 2D games and picture editing stuff.

    i looked at my mobo specs and it has a 4X AGP slot.

    what would be a good video card in this case??

    would something like this: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=14-163-104&depa=1

    work? or do i need to look strictly for 4X AGP cards and not 8x/4x agp cards?

    TIA!!!

    it just means the card will work in 8 or 4x mode... so you would be fine with it.

    If it doesn't as crisp as before, it's probably your monitor going south.

    I'm using 8MB card from late 99 or 00 and it is nice and crisp at 1024 x 768 @ 85Hz
