    I haven't measured the exact fps, but in my experience with TF2 on Windows with Catalyst the game is extremely playable, while on Linux with r600g it is not.

    So, my previous answer was another way for saying "the hardware is perfectly capable, the driver is not".

    My 3650 256 mb - 25.5 fps fullhd settings high, very impressive, hd7790 shows 90 fps

    Useless effort to buy AGP cards, better go to the next recycling depot with a screwdriver and search something from the core 2 area. Or just ask your friends, should not be so hard to get a PCI-E system.
    Yep, but we don't know what the OP already has access to, or if the system is even AGP. That's why I asked.

    On Windows, of course. On Linux, with a severe performance hit...

    My 3870 on windows plays all source games with all their details turned on @1680x1050, minus AA. The fps are quite high...

    On Linux, even with lower settings the fps drop often and a lot...

    Sounds like it might have been playable at a lower res, say 1280x720 or however close you could get ?

    on my old PC, I had a 3850 AGP, no issues. Tried TF2 about half year ago, it worked but too slow, sub 20 fps on 2560x1440.

    Nah, I was just trying to be nice. I didn't want to make a blanket "AGP is crap" without first knowing whether the OP's current system was AGP and hence knowing how carefully I had to word the response. Being polite doesn't come naturally, I really have to work at it

    Edit time.
    In other words, if you have the choice of buying a graphics card now or saving money and getting a new motherboard with PCIE in three years, I'd just struggle with current setup and go with the latter. It's more likely to actually work without hackery and reducing performance with workarounds.
