If you had the choice would you replace your / disable your 8MB AGP infavuor of 32MB tnt PCI card *there is no other cooice in this case* ?

Reasons for choice?

What are you using the PC for, word processing, digital image processing etc. The application may determine the best choice.

Totally agree with Godfather.. it really boils down to what u gonna do with the video card.

The only time that those PCI/AGP 2x/4x/8x will make a big difference in performance is when your video card ran out of memory.

I would say the PCI TNT2 32MB card would perform better than the 8MB AGP Onboard.

thanks for the help. I use the machine for anything and everything. But I want some more grunt for games :)

I'm asking for myself and another person who has found a good deal on the card I mentioned.
