I recently bought an Asus V9520 Magic AGP Graphics card.

It has the Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Engine, 128MB DDR RAM & runs 8XAGP.

It was one of those impulse purchases I must admit. :( but........it only cost me $158.

Was this a good buy or have I wasted my cash on a donkey.

Does anyone have any tips to improve performance? (I havn't had any problems with it thusfar)

I plan to upgrade my entire PC in the next 2 weeks ( new CPU RAM & M/B)

Current specs are:

Asus P4SDR-VM Mainboard
Intel Celeron 1.7Ghz
512MB SD 133Mhz RAM
running Windows 2K Pro SP4

I have upgraded the bios and the board is now capable of running an INTEL P4 2.6Ghz CPU, should I go for a new board or should I stick with this one.

It's a bit short on things like serial ATA and firewire ports but it does everything I want it to do. I do intend to buy a DVD-Writer drive... should I take that into consideration and juts go for a new board with heaps more grunt and features?

Thanks in advance

Why spend good money when you have what you need?
You get what you pay for- the card is a basic entry level standard.
