    Hi,

    I'm from Goa.

    I have old PC (Born September 5, 1999) with a Jetway J-542B motherboard supporting an AMD K6-2 @ 350 Mhz with 128 MB SDRAM and my SiS6326 AGP Accelerator just died (Finally!).

    Please suggest a good cheap graphics card that my motherboard supports and allows me to play todays games at normal settings. How much will it cost?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    well for your motherboard if it has a AGP Slot then you can definetly try for a graphics card such as the Geforce 2 Mx 400 with 64 MB of video Ram which will cost u just Rs.2,000 currently which can run most of todays games at a breeze frame rate but with your configuration it hardly seems enough to run the games at a good rate and if u need an even cheaper solution there is the good old Nvidia Riva TNT 2 graphics card with 32 Mb Of Video Ram(if it still Exits in the market that is) it is the cheapest card availabe at Rs.800 at the max.try upgrading ur systems a little bit to get a decent performance from ur graphic card ot it simply ain't worth putting a graphic card if the system spec is that low.good luck.

    Lol ... I know what you mean when I think of my celeron ;)

    For a graphics card, you will have to mention a budget. A TNT2 M64 or a Geforce 2 are good options, but they wont be able to handle the very new games of today. Also keep an eye out for a S3 Savage 2000. You will be able to play (at maximum) games like FIFA 2003, NOLF 1, Deus Ex etc. Good luck on finding one.

    Ati Radeon 9200 or GeForce FX 5200 will be good but i don't know if it will support your motherboard or not.

    I think Ge-force 2 is best for ur system. Go for it.
