What video card would go well the above CPU?

People have told me not to get the relatively new AGP video cards as it would be waiting for CPU to catch up. But no one has told me or recommended to me what card too get.

Please keep in mind I'm on a tight budget.

Cheers

geforce4 mx would do ok. you could go for a bottom end gf4 ti, all depends on your budget. otherwise check out the 2nd hand market. a gf2 gts or gf3 would still be a good card. don't forget ati make some quite good cards as well :)

I have a Duron 800MHz cpu.

I originally used a GF2 MX400 32MB card and upgraded a year ago to a GF4 MX440 64MB card.

The increase in performance with this upgrade was, in my opinion, worth it, though I wouldn't recommend an upgrade to a 'faster' card as I already noticed that my cpu was holding back my video card.

So, my recommendation would be a GeForce 4 MX440 64MB card. You could probably pick one up new for around $80 to $90?
