It is a toss-up , six ppl love ati , six love nvidia. I personally am a gamer, i run 2 nvidia 8600's (256m each). This is a personal preference.
My advise to you is look at the system requirements of your games you have or want to buy and see what video card they are optimised for, buy that one , but go a little beyond the specifications needed for the game as you dont want to upgrade again soon.
also take note if your PC has a 2x , 4x , or 8x agp bus. this will determine how much of an 8x card you can use in your system. for example , if you have an 4x AGP slot on your computer and install a 8x card, the card will run at 4x.
other things to consider. clock speeds are diferent on the same card from different manufactures as they customize the software and some beef up the clock settings. so you could buy the same card from two different makers and they will operate differently as for as performance.
I have had a lot of luck with nvidias' albatross 6600 GT 128Meg agp 4x card. i replaced it with a newer ATI x1200 256meg agp 8x and it only ran about two thirds as fast as the nvidia card with twice the bandwitdh.
in conclusion, i switched back as the 6600gt was actually a pci-e card with an agp interface (first generation pci-e)
i am fond of nvidia for gaming , but also know you get what you pay for in video cards.
Hope this helps in the decisiond making.
Regards.

I cant play 3d games


Try earlier versions of 3D games.
Your computer is a somewhat older model. So try playing 3D games released around 2000-2002.
Try NFS 6 or lower, GTA version 2, IGI 1 & 2 etc.
If even they don't work, try replacing the VGA card with a compatible but better VGA card (Cards from nVidia might be a good option).

I recommend you to buy ATI 4670 instead since it is much more powerful than you listed above & now the price should be around $64+
It is much better for GTA IV than those you listed.

Help about mainboard MSI-7312 ver 1.0


ya u can purchase AGP8x graphic card. But
AGP8x slots become old, now PCIExpress 16x is in the market it is better, advance gives higher performance for games and software than AGP gives.
AGP is also costly than PCIE graphic cards.
So, i want to suggest u that u should purchase Intel Original Board
of G965, G45 series boards it has lots of benefits configuration with DDR2, 4SATA ports, PCIE-16x and u not need to purchase graphic card
because these board supports T&L it has 256MB to 384MB inbuilt graphics which can play most of the high graphics games without graphic card. I am to using G965RY board with 384MB inbuilt. but company has stop manufacturing this board. Now more better boards have launched in the market which is better then 965RY.
Now its upon u what to do. Good Luck

Hi, my display card on a acer aspire t310 died. Which card do i need to get? AGP PCI-e?


AGP video cards are the best and latest generation video cards. Depending upon your requirements, especially it you play games that have high graphics requirements, go for the G-Force graphics card with as much video RAM as possible. Check out the various G-Force graphics cards.
