buy a X1950GT, or go PCIe?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So My Comp works great ATM, but should I get a X1950GT, or 7900GS AGP, and stick the Tidewater on it(so it will be a pro for sure), or save and go DDR2/PCIe?

Here is my next build if I go DDR2/PCIe

The A-DATA's would most likely be replaced 2-4 weeks out for a 2GB kit.

Thanks in advance,
NeiN

I would just get a better AGP card, the 7600gt isn't better then what you have now, so you won't see any improvement in games if you go that route.

HAHA u just made my day. It is soo easy to get a X1950GT or 7900GS, or even the X1950XT, but I am soo scared when it comes down to it in about a year, I wont be able to do DX10, but even running DDR400, I wont miss more than 2-4 FPS in games. (keep in mind Sapphire promises to release DX10 AGP cards)


Grrr, u got me thinking again, thanks

Go pci-e and ddr2, it is the best investment.
