I only searched Newegg. But here's a Newegg Listing

Looks like HD 4000 series from the Red Sector, and a whopping 7600GS from the Green side of things.

i had the 7800gs and was a good card (especially once volt modded!). 7950 was good too but had a high failure rate if i remeber correctly. if you are die hard NV then look for these (cant remember if there was a agp 8600). if no luck thengo for an ATI.

just looked at new egg:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=AGP%204X%2f8X

4670 would be your best bet by far, although there may be a bottleneck.

There was a GeForce 7800GS that was AGP.....GeForce 7600GS AGP would actually be slower than his 6800Ultra....no AGP for GeForce8 or later that I'm aware of. nVidia was in a hurry to abandon AGP. Best bet would be HD4670 AGP or a new system.

Its actually the HD3850 agp. They have a 4 series agp card but it doesn't match the performance. Google it yourself.

this, i have a 3850 and can play most game nowadays on medium setting at 1680x1050.

the 3850 has better performance due to it being 256 bit bus, while the 4000 series are only 128 bit.

Good luck is right....considering 7950GX2 was a PCIe card....not AGP. There might have been a 7950GS for AGP, but 7950GX2 was solely PCIe.
