    what is your computer speed & AGP speed(x2,x4 or unlikely x8). take a look at the AGP slot & see the divider off center in the slot. that dictates what AGP speed card will fit in that slot. I bought an ECS SIS315 64meg videocard for about $45Can.

    $60 (what currency?) seems a bit much for that card as I can get a 64MB DDR model for $45CAD ($36USD)

    TNT2 16MB

    PowerColor Radeon 7000 64MB

    sounds like you have either a p1-233mhz or a p2-233mhz motherboard. check to see if you have a brown slot to the right of the pci slots, the agp slot would look like a pci slot besides color but in reverse direction to the pci & also set further forward than the pci slots. if you have an agp slot, your looking at a 2 maybe 4x agp card. if you don't have an agp slot than your looking at a pci card. if you still have the manual for your motherboard, it will tell you what you then you can decide what to do before buying a card that won't work on your computer & having to take it back
