I'm trying to find good and affordable graphics card for an older computer; I only have AGP and PCI slots. I don't know which alot about my parts but I know my comp only runs DDR RAM and my CPU is a Athelon duel core if that helps. Idealy I would like an AGP card under 100$ that can support DirectX10 and is compatible with Vista.

I recently went through a couple of cards and none have lived up to what I needed; my current is the 9200, it has no drivers avalible, does not support DirectX9 (so I can't play basically any games) and has a large amount of Vista problems even though it says Vista compatibe on the freaking box. It would mean alot guys because I don't know what will work, obviously, thanks :D.

AGP has higher bandwidth than PCI. Here is a good one I found.

I can't find any official answer on whether it works in Vista but since it supports DX10, it would have to.
