    For 3k I think you can squeeze in a XFX Geforce 6200 128MB Video card or the usual FX5200.But the former would be a better choice as it has a bit of higher performance than the FX5200.

    I feel nVidia cards are the only option, considering the fact that ATi doesnt have many low-end AGP choices(IMO,none at all.)
    For abt 3.5k, XFX 6200 128 MB seems to be the best and will do good considering that you have a good processor and RAM.
    If you still dont wanna cross 3k, then try any of the GeForce 5 series cards, especially GeForce 5700 (dunno whether its available now).
    I personally feel FX 5200 is obselete, so there's no use getting it.

    For ATI, there are cards like Radeon 9250 and Radeon 9600 that are the cheapest alternatives, but then again, availability is a problem, and they are costlier than their nVidia counterparts

    What about the X300? It's as good as the 6200. Even better would be the X1300. Same price as a 6600 but far better peformance.
    However availability is an issue.

    Actually there are X200 based chipsets available for the Intel Processors as well.Though they aren't as strong competitors as compared to the Nvidia's 6100 onboard solutions.
