7800GS AGP vid upgrade

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
As you can see in my specs below I have a 6800GT and I think that card has finally met its maker. I loaded up Flight Sim X and I can no where get it close to high settings...I know the 7800GS is currently the best AGP vid card out there right now and Newegg has the BFG one for 200 bucks.. My question is will the 7800GS be enough of an upgrade to be able to play some more of these games that are coming out....Or do you think they will release a DX10 Vid card for AGP and should I just wait for that.
Thanks in advance

Maybe if you fixed them.

Wait and upgrade your whole setup. 7800GS is not worth the money. If you can find a 7600GT for a god deal (Under $200) then go for that, but otherwise I would just wait.

Well if you don't want to upgrade your entire pc and you have around $200, the 7800gs is currently the best agp video card you can get. Overclocked it still a good performer, I believe there is someone on these boards that has one and he gets a 3dmark 06 score close to 6000points. Ati was suppose to release some kind of x1900 card that ran on agp, but I haven't heard anything about it in a long time. The other option would be to get a s939 cpu and board with pci-e, so you could use your old ram, hd and optical drives. There are no cards out right now agp or pci-e that support direct X 10 natively, so thats kind of a moot point, I doubt they will release an agp direct X 10 card since the industry has pretty much dropped agp all together in the high end cards.

Stick around with your whole system for a while... I have a feeling they will release a dX10 card in AGP but not sure... Do not upgrade to a 7800gs because you will see minimal increase from your 6800gt. ATI from Diamond will soon be releasing a x1950pro in AGP (I'm waiting for that right now )... So if no AGP card with DX10 comes out then either upgrade to that or its time to move on to PCIe.

I'd say buy a 7600GT PCIe for $120 and then a whole new mobo + cpu.

But if you can't afford that...buy a ~cheap AGP card now; new ones(like the x1950 PRO) are just around the corner.

If I go the route of buying a new mobo AMD CPU and new grpahics card...What would you recommend that I get that is best for the money that I want to spend.
I dont really want to spend much over 250 if I can help it but then again I will be able to sell my current stuff to makew up for it...

i had a 6800GT and now i have a 7800GS and there is no comparison. The 7800GS smokes my 6800. in 3dmark03 the 6800 would get 12k this card gets 18k . oblivion runs smooth as can be. so does bf2. i run bf2 at 1280x1024 with everything on high except textures and i get a solid 85fps , as for 3dmark05 i get over 7k, and aquamark3 gets me 83k. .. if you can get one for 200 bucks then get it. it will tide you over. the evga version i have overclocked really good. to 500/1525.

Keep in mind that you also have a AMD 3500+ vs. my Socket 478 3.0GHZ...Your CPU smokes my vid card so that will probably help as well....

The X1950Pro is coming out in AGP amazingly enough, I think it's coming in at $299 that should kick some serious ass
