    Sorry to disappoint you but all the cards you mentioned are over 2 years old and completely worthless (especially for FEAR).
    You need to increase your budget slightly and get atleast a 6600GT.

    My budget is Rs.5 to 6 thousand. Presently the system works for one for 2 hours and then the system hangs. I have to reboot. The technician says the AGP card is getting hot quickly. Under service. If he confirms the present AGP card(nvidea chipset) is the cause for system hanging I want to change it. Game and other things are secondary. The system should work continuously.

    Thanks in advance for fruitful suggestion. My knowledge about hardeware is poor.

    In the mother board manual it is stated that "do not attempt to instal a legacy 3.3 V AGP Card". whether the suggestions made are not falling under 3.3v. Please clarify

    U can get a Gforce 6600LE 256MB DDR3 card for Rs.5800. And generally the PC hangs due to overheat of the video card. The stock fan isn't enough for keeping the GPU cool enough, so you can try some passive cooling option from Vantec.

    Regards,
    Shovik.
