ATI has a directx10 AGP card - Page 7

post #61 of 98
OH JUST DIE ALREADY.. Not to be mean to agp users but why in the world would AGP have a chance in the dx10 world? PCIE is much cheaper people.. I think that the AGP people here end up being the rich people IMO....

7900GS AGP $150...after rebate

7900GS PCI-16 $115...after rebate + a decent budget socket 939 mother board with PCI-16 $45

So we got $150 vrs $160...allowing some one to re-use old components but yet also allowing you access to more options for video cards.

So stop saying that money is an issue. Unless $10 is too much for the freedom to pick what card you can get.

alright

1. not everyone needs that
2. not everyone upgrades their rig all the time
3. if you need an agp card for a HTCP or something this is a fine option.

This isn't meant for high-end gamers.

That should be obvious....

Don't freak out, man. HTPC - not gaming computer.

*ding ding ding* REP+ for being first to see its intended purpose.

Agreed. AGP is only bad when mixed with a weak CPU that can't run the new games.

LOL...I wasn't fighting. I was saying that a PCI-16 graphics card and a PCI-16 mother board can be found for about the same as an AGP graphics card. The thread is filled with posts from people saying not every one can afford to upgrade their whole system when it actually costs just as much not to upgrade their system.

But if you get a PCI-16 mother board you have a lot more options for your graphics card.

The only reason I see for it is for people to turn an old Athlon or early P4 that they have sitting on a shelf into a HD machine. If you had to purchase the parts it really wouldn't be worth it...unless you are buying them for $20 off ebay or some thing.

Indeed. His rig with that card would kill my P4 PCI-E rig with the same card any day.

mmhmm. Lets not forget the new processor, new ram, maybe a new PSU to power a high-end mobo. And on top of all that, who the hell would want to build an entirely new rig just to go to the same card in PCI-E? Bit out of the way if you ask me. Why not just let them grab an AGP card while they save enough for a high-end PCI-E rig?

read the post...re-use old parts. In this instance the person had a socket 939 AGP mother board. So for the same price as an AGP graphics card, you can buy the same graphics card in a PCI-E version AND a decent PCI-E mother board. Re-use the old CPU, memory, psu, hard drive...nothing else would need to change. And if the PSU can't handle the PCI-E version of a card...it can't handle the AGP version either.

These prices are for some 939 stuff I had just looked at recently. i did a quick browse and saw it to be right about the same for other sockets as well.

Yay... By all means have your Agp cards.. Im not the only one wanting AGP to die.. I just dont understand why they are making AGP cards still I would assume its less than 5% of consumers!
