    My HCPC has a 9800 pro graphics card - now my other halfs PC is in need of an upgrade but just enough for her to use WinXP - so I intend to put the 9800 in her machine and have a slight upgrade in the HCPC

    For around £100 what card (AGP) would be worth the swap

    Something from the Geforce 6 series with Pure Video support, the 6600Gt is good, but a bit over budget. Recent discussion on here suggests that the fanless 6200 for about £50 will do the job.

    the 9800PRO is more powerfull than a 6200, if you had PCI-E you could of got a x800GT, but trd and find a cheap 6600GT or ATI Radeon X700 PRO

    I would keep the 9800 and buy a cheap card for your other halfs PC nvidia 6200 for about £50.

    eBuyer have a 6600GT on offer for less than a ton.

    It has a fan though, but you could change that later if needed.

    I wouldn't spend to much on a non PCI card now. Although I remember reading their was a dual PCI/aGP card. This way you could buy now and swich when you moved to PCI express.

    Well worth it imho.
