AGP and PCI is the kinda of socket that the video card plugs into on your motherboard. AGP is better. If you want to best 64mb video card go with the geforce 4 ti4200 but get the 64mb version then.

AGP stands for Aceralated Graphics Port
PCI stands for Peripheral Component Interconnect

Okay, well I have a 633 mhz celeron and I wanted to get the PNY Technologies Verto™ GeForce 4™ MX 420 64MB Graphics Card AGP. Would it be compatible and where can I find it for a good price.

Make sure you have a AGP slot, if you play games, don't get the GeForce4mx, cause its crap, less power than a GeForce3

Best bang for the buck has to ba a Geforce 4 ti 4200. You can pick up a 64 mb card for about £100 or a 128mb for about £120
