The GS isnt a bad card. Also ATI are no different from Nvidia cards apart from ATI offer better Visuals in most cases.

Here is a more detailed overview of graphics card performance and the technologies and terminologies explained very well.

In particular:

Important information
Today it’s in my opinion a bit obsolete to talk about “pixel pipelines†when talking about the latest generation of video cards (R5XX and G7X). This is why I have decided to include: pixel shader units, TMUs, ROPs (z compare units are a part of a ROP) and vertex shader units.

â€A Pixel shader unit calculates different effects for a displayed pixel to create realistic materials and surfaces. In general one could say that the more pixel shader units exists the better the performance would be. Not all games uses the same amount of shaders, therefore the performance will fluctuate between themâ€

â€The most basic explanation of the fuction of a Texture Mapping Unit (TMU) is that it uses a 2D-image to “clothe†a 3D figure.

â€A Render Output Unit or Raster Operations Pipeline (ROP) is one of the final steps in producing the final result. The ROP takes care of the transformation of information stored in the GPUs memory into pixels which are displayed on a monitor. The basic task for a ROP is: AA, blending (just explained) and z-buffer de-/compression.â€

â€The basic task for a vertex shader unit is to control the behaviour and appearance of the corners to the triangles which 3D-objects are build uponâ€

â€Unified shader unit (called â€stream processor†by nVidia) can do pixel, vertex and with time geometry (a DX10 feature) shading.â€

With regards to performance I would go for a 6800GT as a minimum if you wish to play games on at least medium settings @ 1280x1024

The 7600GT would be a good choice as the others have suggested.

Hope that helps

6600GT > 6800 and 6800XT

6800XT wont run fear on med settings at a playable framerate

If you ask me they are $70 overpriced

here man just get a 7600GS 12pp and 5vp's

it has 12 TMU's 8 ROP's and 16 Z Compare Units

contrarary to what i have posted before my card does extremely well in fear, 1024x768 evertthing maxed except AAx2 trilinear no softshadows med. texture res. i can turn up text res and off AA and get nice frames so 6800 isnt a bad card runs most games well. ran oblivion quite well too

I Agree with the above statement.

My friend has a 6800XT AGP. Its garbage. A 7600GS, or an older 6800GS would be a much better choice.

Thread Starter 
7600GS runs @ 400/533mhz & reads @ 400/266mhz yes i kno its double but thats not worth it to me & its 128-bit.the best card i see i can get thats AGP is the X850 Pro i think it is & its radeon,ahhh man i get nervous when it comes to radeon cards & am nervous free with Nvidia cards.
Am realy lookin for a card thats 256-bit 256mb,DDR2-3,& atleast 375-800 or 400-1000,y did they had to create PCIe damnit lol.
