I am looking to find the best AGP video card for my needs. I currently am running an ancient P4 2.4 on an 845 Intel mobo and 1gb ram. my current graphics card is a 9600 pro 256. My pc is hooked up to my 50" lcd as a monitor and it works great. The issue I am trying to solve is playing 1080 hd media files. I can play most 720 files without a problem and 1080's will play but video and audio are out of sinc. Please let me know what AGP card for the best price would allow me to do what I need. Thanks for your help!

Your 2.4 GHz P4 could also be bottlenecking your video performance. My old p4 computer has trouble playing 1080p, despite having a geforce 6600. Just save up for a new system. You're wasting your money upgrading an AGP machine, which most likely can't even play 1080p no matter what video card is in it.
