Assemble, my minions.  I'm in need of nerdism.

About a month ago, I bought a video card.  But oops, it was a PCI card and I needed an AGP one.  So the fucker went back, I got my credit, and then decided to investigate shit more thoroughly before I spent my cash again.

So I got paid today, so it's time to splurge.  But I want to be sure I get the right one, so...

Look.

See over there, where it says Interface?  See where it has those two different sorts of of AGP cards?  What's the fucking difference between the two types, and if there even IS a difference, how would I go about determining which one to go with?  I'm pretty sure there's no real difference as far as compatibility goes, but I'd rather be sure, because I don't want to go through the fucking hassle of another return.

And...I won't exactly turn down any recommendations you might have in the $150-$200 range.  I'm sure you people know more about them than I do.  All I want is to play Oblivion without fooling my computer into running it. :P

If your computer doesn't have 8X AGP, it's fucking dumb.

Like, really dumb.

Dumb Retarded.

The motherboard's getting damn near five years old.  You tell me. :P

AGP 8X theoretically offer better performance, but it's negligible at best. All AGP video cards are backwards compatible, so you can chuck one that supports up to 8X into an AGP 4X slot and it'll work just fine.

And get yourself a Radeon X1950Pro.
