Just stumbled on a pretty good deal over at Tigerdirect. If any of you want a relatively inexpensive upgrade solution, you might check out THIS (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=1179550&sku=P450-8536&CMP=EMC-TIGEREMAIL&SRCCODE=WEM1013CV) card.

$44.99 after $15 mail-in rebate.

NVIDIA GeForce 5500 FX with 256 MB of video memory. 8X AGP. It also has a DVI port for your high res flat panel monitor.

(Obviously this won't work for you if you only have PCI slots; or if you're looking for one of those newer PCI Express cards...)

But, it looks like a pretty good deal. If you have one of those older NVIDIA MX cards and are tired of rolling the drivers back every time you want to play Uru... or you can't play Uru because you have the wrong card or incompatible integrated graphics... this might be a good item for your Christmas list.
