Graphics card hunting


AKA Ass-Bandit
Okay, I'm looking for a new graphics card to replace my GeForce FX 5200. Specificaly, I'm looking for something in the range of £50 - £100, but I don't mind if I need to pay a little more than £100. It has to be a AGP card as well. Could you guys give me some ideas of what to get?

*UPDATE* Here's the information for my AGP slot:

Version : 3.00
Maximum Data Transfer Rate : 4x
Multiplier : 1/2x
Fast-Writes Enabled : No
Fast-Writes Support : Yes
Isochronous Mode Enabled : No
Addressing Enabled : 32-bit

Man, I just got a new laptop, and am so satisified with it I have completely forgotten about desktop parts...

What are the other specs on your system...I am not a huge gamer, but I gamed comfortably for years on my ATI AIW 9700...But I'm using a GeForce Go card now, and I'll probably not be using ATI again...
