AGP is now old, and is very difficult and expensive to find a good graphic card for it.

You can still buy a Geforce 9800 for it, but.... its expensive.

Time to upgrade your system i'm afraid which means new motherboard, RAM for the new motherboard, CPU, and GPU.

Also bear in mind, the most important thing for improving your FPS is the CPU and then the GPU, RAM is last. If your windows is a 32bit version then your extra 4GB won't be fully used, anything 3GB+ you need a 64bit OS to get the most out of your RAM.

if that's the case,buying new computer would be better,or find a second hand high spec computer either on some stores or on the net...

here in japan,most of the net providers offers new laptop or computer(either free or with a little additional fee,which is cheap) just to get more new users...

that's how i got my laptop,free.only because i changed provider

but seriously about low spec computers,i muchly advise buying newer one(you can customize for better specs) rather than buying piece by piece just to upgrade an older one,that's in the case that you would need more piece to upgrade...

if you're using desktop,probably only the cpu would be needed,or if both of your cpu and monitor is low spec,then changing both is better...

Don't ask for computer help here. You're just gonna get a bunch of wannabes giving you loads of useless and just plain wrong info.

Go to Overclock.net for computer help. The higher density of computer-literate people will ensure morons are quickly revealed and just as easily ignored.

The problem is the request for help itself. That's not even close to enough information for a specific diagnosis. FPS could be gone to **** because of CPU cycles getting stolen, CPU not being buff enough, GPU not being buff enough, Network Settings suck, etc.

There's a lot of things that can hold back FPS. You really have to give way more information. I've had some of my games drop severely in FPS at points simply because my server backup program decides to begin its job right when I'm playing my games.

Also to add, since I replied here are you considering me as a wannabe?

Overclock.net peeps are mostly non-it people, maybe a small handful but they are single minded in one thing overclock everything as much as you can. Hence where they are.

No matter where you go you will get people who read things and although try to help will always be misinformed and in turn misinform others, thats how it is.

But lets be honest AdmiralThrawn your not that IT literate in the first place to know that people give useless advice, so perhaps making those comments to others shouldn't be happening.

That is all I am going to say about that.
