Looking for advice on upgrade from AGP 6600GT

I am trying to figure out what are my options for a AGP video card to upgrade from XFX 6600GT AGP for gaming purposes. I am a newbie at gaming and have been recently dabbling with Quake 4. I installed this card when it was considered to be one of the better cards out there. But at that time I never played anything! So now it got me thinking what AGP card could I upgrade to for higher quality rendering, without breaking the bank. Its a AMD +3200 System with 1GB ram. Quake seems to run ok at full native resolution of the Dell 2001fpw monitor at High quality. With Ultra quality setting it starts to choke. I know if I had a PCI-e system i would have many options. But right now I am not planning on a new box. Looking for some advice from more experienced folks than myself. many thanks

iTunes problem

I recently upgraded an old Mac G4 733mhz to iTunes 7. Yeah, big mistake. Beachballs galore. Is there a way to switch back to the previous version? Or could I install a faster processor (If I had read the system requirements it called for 1 ghz chip or faster)? This is a secondary computer that was basically used as a music player, so some light tinkering would be acceptable.

Upgrade from W2K to XP

I want to upgrade my laptop from Windows 2000 to XP. How can I preserve my Outlook settings between the upgrade? I ask because I connect to an Exchange Server with settings on Outlook which have been tweaked heavily over time. Also, will the XP install give me an option to preserve my previous system? In case everything goes pear-shaped, I'd like to be able to roll back to my previous state. If it goes right, can I delete all the data needed to roll-back after to optimise disk space? Thanks in advance.
