Which AGP card?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am a member of the "dinosaur" era and currently have a ATI 9800 Pro that does not overclock for crap. I want to know which card I could get that would be considerably better with noticable difference? Also reasonably priced? No preference of manufacturer. Thanks!

A 6800GS is cheap and overclocks well.

the best AGP card out now is the X1950Pro. Might be too expensive, a 6800GS or 7600GT would do you great.

There are tons of different 6800 series cards that would fare well, but aim for a 7600gs or preferable a rar 7600gt agp. If the cash flow is high, you can get a 7800gs for a little over 250, and a x1950 pro for about the same

I've seen 6800XTs and GSs for cheap, around 100-130. The 6600GT is only 100 on newegg. If you want something with more performance, you can get a 7800GS for 200 after MIR on newegg. If you want a 7 series card but not as expensive as a 7800GS, you can get a 7600GS, but i wouldn't recommend those. The 7600GTs for AGP are too expensive when u can just get a 7800GS, if you ask me. I haven't seen any of the X1950 Pros out for AGP yet, but benchmarks show that they'll only get like a max of 5FPS higher--ever. Unless you're talking Oblivion and the whole HDR+AA thing, but i dunno if the price justifies that. The choice is yours.
