Biostar NF61SMICROAM2S mATX AM2 DDR2 GEFORCE6100 1PCI-E16 2PCI SATA2 Video Sound LAN Motherboard: 55$

Around 105$+10$ shipping. You got a CPU, MOBO with PCI-E16, RAM and basic Geforce. I ran FarCry and Ut2k4 easy on a setup like that. You just need to scavenge some dude's AM2 stock cooler.

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

So is this a joke?

I don't really see the point in upgrading a computer like that, especially if it runs windows fine.

I hear what you're saying (and I realize the OP has changed the subject from AGP to PCI) but my experience with GF4s in i440BX boards has been slightly less than stellar. I do not know whether it is the power requirements or the AGP voltage or what, but I did have problems getting the setup stable under high load. I had resorted to GPU lapping and copper heat sinks at the time and still.

It'll run XP or 2K fine as long as you have at least 256MB RAM, otherwise you'll want Windows 98SE or Windows Me. WinMe is ok as long as you thoroughly update it and disable its awful bugged system restore. You definitely must use Firefox or Opera instead of IE6 (latest u can get for 98 & Me.)

Any PCI vid card will work.

BTW, there is no AGP 1x slot. The earliest are AGP 2x. If it had even a 440LX chipset you could still run a GeForce FX 5950 or Radeon 9800 XT. Be a little CPU limited, but hey now! Those cards are the fastest ones that were still backwards compatible to 2x 3.3v.

1.5v was the answer to my question, just wondering.
http://www.interfacebus.com/Design_Connector_AGP.html

The mobo showed "agp 1x, 2x speed" in cpuid but that was referring to the onboard graphics or chipset maybe ,Theres no slot.
