The actual top AGP cards are getting pricey now too:
Radeon 3870 AGP (only ES)
Radeon 3850 AGP
Radeon 4670 AGP
Technically the 3850 AGP is more powerful, but you'll be CPU bottlenecked on the majority of AGP systems.
Don't forget the Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ (7900GT) and the AGP 7950GT.
Yeah you're a little bottlenecked unless you have an Asrock s775 Dual Vsta. I have 2 of these boards actually. You can run up to E8600 or even QX6800. Maybe Q9650 would work too. But any of those CPUs could support the potential of the fastest AGP cards.
