Looking for best AGP GeForce

I'm still running Sage on an XP PC with AGP and need a recommendation for a good video card. I prefer the GeForce series if possible. Anybody have any they would recommend?

Thanks,

Bobby

Any newer than the 7 series would be fine. if you can find an 8600gt or 9500gt you would be set.

IIRC Nvidia killed off the AGP interface with the 7 series, all 8 series or newer are PCIe only. I had a 7800GS that did hardware accelerated h.264 with the Cyberlink decoder. I could get 720p playback on a 3.0GHz p4 but not full 1080p. The AGP 7800s were expensive when they came out but I think you can pick them up used relatively cheap now
