I think such a thing has gone the way of the Dodo.

Newegg.com has many cards @ 100.00, but not knowing your system I hesitate to recommend one to you. I noticed a 6600 nvidia for 99$... it's PCI-X. What kind of video slot do you have on your MB?

I have an AGP 8x 32bit full length avaliable. I will also be upgrading from 256mb ram to 1gig soon

For US$127, you can get an 8 pipe card, which is well worth the extra few dollars and a good performer in our sims. SAPPHIRE Radeon 9800PRO 128MB 256-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102477)

While not a big fan of Tom's Hardware, here is a link where you can see the 9800 Pro and the 6600 compared side by side. VGA Charts VII: AGP Update Summer 2005 (http://www4.tomshardware.com/2005/07/05/vga_charts_vii/index.html)
