Default Budget AGP card

Got a colegue ehre who has a AGP Setup, of wich the Geforce 4 ti4400 died.
Looking for a new AGP card now, what I found and is in budget:

Sapphire ATI A9250TD 128MB (AGP/TV/DVI) 31,90
Sapphire ATI X1550 Pro 512MB (AGP/TV/DVI) 79,90
POV nVidia GeForce 7600GS 256MB (AGP/DVI/HDTV) 84,90

Should be for gaming. Paired with a P4 2.4.
What would you choose ? I'd prefer new over second hand for this particular case.

7600GS, all other options are way too slow

I agree with jmke. Although to be honest with those kind of specs I'm not even sure you could cut it for todays games let alone future games

My opinion would be to save up some money and completely overhaul the entire system. Decent hardware is pretty cheap now and it would be wiser to invest into something that will last you longer. AGP cards are slowly dying and they certainly don't justify the high prices for what you get.

Just my 2 cents.

I know that, bud budget is limited and pc was moer then sufficent. Only the VGA card broke down, so looking for an AGP alternative ti4400 performance wise.

as you see, the 7600GS is your best bet to play older games at mid/high quality and new games at low settings
