Advice requested on new Graphics card purchase

  xander_uk2 16:35 02 Dec 03

Hello everyone :)

Now, I have a bit of a Dilema, because my knowledge of graphics cards isnt that great.

My current system is as follows:
AMD Duron 1.3 Ghz
GeForce 4 Ti4200 64 MB DDR
512 MB DDR Ram
Windows 98 SE
ECS Elitegroup K7S5A Motherboard (4x AGP)

Now, I am playing Galaxies and will also look into Half Life 2 when it becomes available so have decided to upgrade my PC a bit.

I have been looking at graphics cards and really like the look (and Price) of the new Geforce FX range.
My budget is £150, and I am leaning towards the Gainward GeForce FX5600 256MD DDR (£148 at Dabs) or the MSI Geforce 5600 range.

My question is, what will give me the best bang for buck with regard to my current system?
Can anyone recommend an alernative within the same price range?

Does anyone think the 1.3 GIG Duron will be the bottleneck when I upgrade?
I will also upgrade to an Athlon XP2100 sometime after new year i THINK. But as of yet am undecided.
Thank you very much in advance.
