Hey guys, got recommended a card for my Windows 98 machine that I realized I already had, but it's in my Pentium 4 Northwood (Windows XP) Machine, so now I need a recommendation for a video card for my Dell Dimension 4400 running Windows XP. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

Well guys, I was able to source an ATi Radeon 9600XT for $30 on ebay, should work well enough for my needs, also the slot on this one is only up to AGP 4x from the information I have seen.

Wikipedia concurs in this handy list of the product line https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dell_Dimension

Lol, it may be for up to 4x but ANY AGP card that is 8x will work in it without any problems.

Many 3Dfx and Pentium III-S stuff.

Excellent choice, I was about to recommend one. The R9600 Pro/XT is a well balanced price/performance card for Win98.
