video cards

Need to upgrade the video card, have been happy with the ATI 32 meg AIW Rage 128 so far, but I am getting ready to step into the present so that I may be able to play a few modern games( looking at the new World of Warcraft, hell, can't even play Unreal 2003). Please, give some economical recomendations for some of the modern-day cards, not looking for "top-of-the-line", just something that will allow me to play modern games, preferbably used, but will buy new if forced.

go get one of the cheapo 128mb cards, look in the weekly adds and you can probably find one for ~$80. It ain't the best but it gets the job done.

Yeah, AGP, I have an 1700+xp ecu, Asus A7V333-X mobo, and 512 ram. The video card is the last thing I need to upgrade. Thanks for the recommendation.
