I am so excited about the new gfx card I am getting for xmas, I finally found what I want. Not the best of all brands, not pcie(would need new mobo), but it looks like I am going to enjoy this card!

https://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produ...uctCode=322987

A 6800GT AGP 256MB 256-bit DDR3, same company as my old card(never had a problem with my old PNY, its just outdated lol) This is gonna rock my games for sure~

I think There's is something strangely musical about noise.

Really i would go for the 6800gs its cheaper and is pretty much the same. In the sense of a frame or so.

Nope doesn't come on AGP for GS already looked. Even so I would rather have a GT or Ultra then a GS or lower. I never said it will be the best card, but as far as I can tell I am going to love this card!

That's the same card I have except mine was eVGA.

I was also very excited but when I put it in my mobo it didn't recognize the video card even though my mobo supports 8x. So I consulted the manual and it says "Support for 8x/4x/2x/1x 1.5v only". So it didn't support the .8v and I went into a depression and ate a lot and drank some eggnog.

But I'm getting a new mobo anyway so I can put it in, it's agony looking at the box but not using the card.

By the way have you ever seen a card that freaking big?

Yeah it's expensive, best price I can locate is on that link from zipzoomfly. Every where else seems to be over 350$. The MSi 6600GT I was gonna get was only about 100$ cheaper, I figured screw it I'll pay the extra 100$ and get something worth enjoying.

Hey SNOOPSTA thanks for the info, now i am confident that there will be selling gs agp in america market.
BUT why is the price so freaking high..
By the way FROST, Why don't you purchase an eVGA 6800 gt from Newegg, it only costs $285 there.
