    I'm at the point once again where my current graphics card is starting to lag behind the software produced. I currently have an ATI all-in-wonder X800 series card. The rest of my system is working great so I would just like to upgrade the graphics card. After mistakenly purchasing a new card that didn't fit my slot, I am asking for advice for the most high-end graphics card that will fit in my current slot. I'm guessing by the specs on my current card that my slot is a apg 8x (?)

    What would be your suggestion???
    Thanks!

    The standard appears to be PCI Express today as far as buying a new card check tigerdirect.com that is where I found mine... i do not have PCI Express but wanted 512MB and HD quality.
