Hello everyone I need some help finding a good videocard (In stock). I have 199.37 in my payal account so that is my limit. Also I am still on an AGP interface so only those sugggestions. Now I have done extensive research so I know which are the best cards. The problem is that the best cards are out of stock, such as the 7600GT. I would like to get the VC asap so that I can play games like WoW, GW Factions, NFS MW, and Farcry. At this point I am very open minded as far as what I buy, although I have some standards. I can't be using some old DDR2 technology so that rules out the 1650 Pro I think. The 7600GS is a POS, along with the x1600 Pro so they seem to be out. I am considering an 850 even though it is older tech at least its a beast VC that will do well.

I guess thats all I have to say about this but I reall hope that someone can help me. I want to see what you guys come up with so please don't be shy. I would also REALLY appreciate links. Thanks a lot guys for all the help have a good day.

I'm running this same card although PCIE, it should be similar performance.

It is OEM, and is a little under your budget, but for the price its pretty good. I believe the AGP version is also unlockable to 16pipes, I could be wrong though.

Why would he wanna go from a 7600GT to a 6800GS? Maybe I came too late and he already bought the 7600GT, and had an older card to begin with...

From all accounts , that 6800 that skyman is pointing you to is a great card. The x850xt is also a very good card, comparable to the 7600 gt, but it doesn't suport SM 3.

Well I just tried to buy that 7600 GT AGP but they do not accept PP. I am begging to think that I am not ment to have this card. My sig rig says 7600GT because I pre-ordered the XFX brand. Today I recieved an email saying that my order was cancelled as thet are not sure when XFX is shipping the next order. I found a 1650 Pro for 125 on newegg but that DDR2 kills me. They also have a 512MB RAM for 145, I was thinking that the 512 might make up for the DDR2? One last thing I found a NEW BFG 6800 GT for 145 on Ebay. I was thinking of getting that and OCing the crap out of it lol.

Lets pretend I could have any ONE of these for free what should I get.

6800GT--145 NEW
1650 Pro 125 MIR NEW
x850 xxx
Thanks for the help fellas please keep it coming.
