What do you want you system to be able to do? High end games, word processing?

Not a good board. I don't blame you for wanting to get away from the crappy IGP, but spend as little as possible on an AGP card. Your system just isn't worth the investment.

EDIT: I just realized that you've posted several questions recently. I thought you just bought an FX5500? Spend as little money on your outdated system as possible. You're not going to make a modern speedster out of it no matter what you do.

yeah, there are better agp card than fx5500. Radeon hd 4670 is the king of agp cards. I can't list all of them use google to find them.

"i did bought an FX5500. im just thinking if there are othr agp vid cards better than this"

Of course there are better cards...lots of them. But your system is old! The HD 4670 as mentioned by kuwese would cost over $100. Your system is not worth spending that kind of money on! Plus you would probably need a new power supply. A decent one would cost another $50+/- so you'd be dropping $150 into a machine that's not even worth 1/2 that much.

Your motherboard is very outdated. It's based on a crappy VIA chipset that only supports 400MHz FSB CPUs & has a 4X AGP slot. Your P4 processor is weak & you don't have enough RAM. And as I recall, you already bought the wrong type of RAM (registered/ECC meant for servers?). Hopefully you got your money back. How much did you pay for the FX5500, more than $20??

If you're trying to turn this old machine into a gamer, it's not gonna happen, unless you'll be happy playing games that are about 5 yrs old?

@jam

well thanks for being honest. I know that my system is old. i just want to keep the system and upgrade it to the highest i can since its parts becamme very cheap now.

Your P4 processor is weak & you don't have enough RAM. And as I recall, you already bought the wrong type of RAM (registered/ECC meant for servers?). Hopefully you got your money back

i just upgraded (just now) my P4 from 1.8Ghz/400Mhz to 2.8Ghz/533Mhz. For my RAM i bought (yes again i bought but its the correct type now) 1Gb DDR266 and no i didnt got my money back from my previous mistake, im trying to sell that ECC RAM w/o any luck at all.

How much did you pay for the FX5500, more than $20??
No its less, $15-$13 cant remember but it is below $20

If you're trying to turn this old machine into a gamer, it's not gonna happen, unless you'll be happy playing games that are about 5 yrs old?

Before i was trying to do that, but i realized the power of dual cores and everything today, Im planning to upgrade this system to the highest and when im done, Buying latest system will be my next goal.

Thanks for the help dude. I appreciate it.
