Hd 4670 is the best agp card before hd 4670, hd 3850 used to be the best agp card. But still a good gaming card. Don't buy another card use hd 3850 (i assume u meet psu requirements). Don't xpect to play recent games with your system.

The 6200 is low end garbage. The Radeon HD3850 is probably the best (or 2nd best) AGP card on the market. Figure out how to make it work. Other than your crappy Celeron, you more than meet the requirements for League of Legends so it *should* run well. Make sure you have all the latest drivers & have uninstalled the drivers for the 6200.

"once i get a new motherboard with pci-e ill be good"

You realize that when you finally get the new board, you'll need a new CPU, new RAM, new video card & quite possibly a new power supply? Start saving your money.

"if someone has a good place for ati drivers please assists me"

You need to go to the ATI site. They've come out with a fix for AGP cards.

EDIT: just noticed you're running an illegal version of XP

" i have an ati radeon sapphire hd 3850 also i put in my comp its an agp 4x/8x video card butgames didnt seem to be working correctly im either doing something wrong or something."

-First, hit ctrl+shift+Esc and make sure that the CPU is idling (0% CPU usage). When I had an HD 3650 AGP in my older box, the driver would occasionally allow hardware interrupts to use well over half of the CPU's time. This slowed everything way down.

-That Celeron isn't fast enough for League of Legends. The main problem with your CPU is its puny 128KB L2 cache--it just isn't enough to keep Netburst's 20-stage "data assembly line" occupied. As a result, that Celeron is spending most of its time pulling data from main memory through a slow 400MHz front side bus.

Games are the most cache-hungry programs you can buy. An old T-bird Athlon running a GHz slower would outperform that Celly as a gaming CPU.

EDIT: Sorry, didn't read most of the other posts. It looks like you have a classic HD 3000 driver conflict. The ATI hotfix didn't work for me either; I had to use Omega drivers to get my card to work.
