http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102608R

It has 12 but can be flashed to 16 pixel pipelines (compared to 12 for the 7600 and x1600 ) and 256bit memory interface (compared to 128bit for the 7600 and x1600) also it has ddr3 memory compared to ddr2 for 7600 and x1600. The x800gto only has Pixal Shader 2.0 compared to newer 3.0 on the other cards, but it should be good for a AGP system.
Hope this helps.

512 meg version of that card will perform worse than its 256 meg counterpart. the 128 bit ringbus cant utilize 512 megs of ram on that card. and will slow it down. its a gimmic.

What???? are u serious?anyway do what ever u want with ur money man,an X1300 pro is under $100 on newegg so why pay $130?no clue.as i told u before man,u had to go atleast to $130 to make ur AGP last until PCIe upgrade,but not on a card like that if u wanna play newer games or even games thats out at the moment.
that card is not worth $130 IMO,& the 128bit is gonna hold u back,anyway goodluck on ur card man.

Hmmm, for the same money you could of had an X1600Pro, a 6800XT a 7600GS or an X1650Pro...

I'm pretty sure one of those would of been a better buy... I'd say the X1650Pro would be a heck of a lot more powerful for your $130 than an X1300Pro. Still, it's your choice. You asked for advice, we gave it, you certainly don't have to take it .
