What new video card should I go with?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ok I am currently using a Sapphire 9600XT and its been in my computer for almost 4 years, it was ok back when but now I need something that can run the games I play a little better. I would like something better than my current card for under $120 that is AGP, doesnt matter if it is ATI or Nvidia. I will also be upgrading my ram from 512mb to 1.5gb to go along with a new card.

I recently upgraded my card and I'm really happy with it.
maybe a X1650PRO or a 7600GT? They correspond to your price-range.
I haven't owned either so I can't comment on them. look for some online reviews, this could help
Some people would say that the Nvidia cards OC better.

Yea the X1650PRO or the 7600 GT are probably all you're going to see for your price range thats AGP. Any top AGP cards are going to be up by the $200 price range.

He might see a 7800GS for a shade over $120.

I was actually looking at a couple x1650 cards before I ever posted this. Check out these two links and tell me what you think. Neither one is a pro but they look pretty good. But it would be better for me to go with a pro car anyone got a recommendation? The 7600GT looks like it is a little bit higher but no problem.. I could easily spend $1000 on a card, I have the money to spend I just dont want to spend a major amount on computer stuff. But I do want decent performance. Thanks for the help I dont mean to seem like a noob, back when I built my comp I was on here all the time and had over 600 posts. Its just been a while since i've looked at computer stuff.

These first two may very well be junk, i'm not sure.

Those last 2 cards are PCI-E and the 1st one is not good IMO.

The 7800GS I posted isnt PCI-E. Will the PCI-E work on my mobo? I have 4 PCI slots.

the people that keep mentioning these cards know what they're talking about. not only would a higher card cost more, but it would probably end up bottlenecking your CPU and not giving better performance anyway. the only advantage to an ATi in this range is that they can do HDR and AA simultaneously. unfortunately, 1650s struggle with HDR anyway, so it's kind of a moot point.

i'd get Grunions g-card if i were you. it's a good deal, and better than a 1650 or 7600.
