Hello all, I am not the richest man in the world, so I want to buy the right little graphics card to work with my computer for basic shooter games. I can all ready run them on the integrated, but with a poor frame rate of 30fps at idle and 50fps in battle. I have a 210 w power supply I believe, and I have a spot for a low profile AGP card, but I need it to have a 172 pin connection. I see a lot of cards with three connectors on the bottom of them, mine only has 2 in the slot provided. Here is a link to my specs:


Mine is the small desktop computer

I am just looking for a small card that will give me that extra bit of framerate and what not so I can have fun playing Crossfire lol.

Here is a pic of my motherboard if it helps:

My computer basically looks like that with the only difference being I have an expansion bay in the pci slot that has two more pci slots.

So like I said, I only want to spend around 50$ or less, on a graphics card that is just good enough to make a bit of a difference, and can handle having a 210w power supply. Please let me know your suggestions.
