For a start, most video cards produced today will still not max out the bandwidth on an AGP 8x bus. Add to this the fact that crashing games has very little to do with the videocard interface, and your entire arguement is balony. When I had an AGP system I never had to reformat my system. Also, you don't "invest" in a computer for playing games. The value of the components will only deteriorate over time, so its an expenditure without return rather than an investment (which implies there would be a financial gain/return from purchasing new components).

Sorry I had to tear you apart infront of everyone, but don't be anti-something for no good reason.
You teared apart a statement by me that was suppose to be a inuendo, go back reread it

Also if you think, which is what your saying, that investing in computers whenever a new component comes out is a waste of money, then you are definitely in the wrong forums. The word overclock means to speed up the computer beyond the manufacturer's specifications in order to run faster. Tell me why would anybody want to do that other than play more videogames, do more software editing, or even just to gain a higher score in benchmarks? I am talking about the avid overclockers on this forum, if they were given 500 bucks I bet they would probably go buy a new videocard or something computer related, I know I would. Maybe your just not in the right forums, you seem to think updating your computer is a loss, sorry we don't think that way.

well, I must say, I am extremely happy with the performance of my card.
at 725/1600 it is quick.

at 920/1750 (standard cooler)
it is insane.
coming from someone who previously gamed on a Dell Inspiron 1300.

scores just over 7k on a otherwise stock system.
i would say that is reasonable.
if i o.c'd (which im not doing yet, im keeping stock until AS5 is cured) then i could probably hit 9k.

i paid $100 for the PCI-E version.
the AGP card is likely to perform simalarly. maybe a little slower due to the bandwidth.

YOU NOOB!

Do you even know what overclocking was originally for?!?!?!

It was to PREVENT users having to upgrade their computer to run newer software and games. Overclocking was something those on a tight budget did, and still do!

Hey look, I can run all the latest software I WANT to run. No DirectX 10? Do I own a single DirectX 10 game? nope. So why would I sped money on a new bit of hardware I dont need?

Get a grip.

My suggestion is that people like froggy the newb should step into my world, take the plunge, instead of sticking with his BE-2300 and his broken x1800. In the least bit it will make him less cranky. Invest in a new intel, invest in nvidia, its the right way to go, its the way I am trying to show.
hypocrites at their best!!

sorry, but you just admitted that you lost. high-five, alk.

Plenty of socket 754, 939, and LGA775 AGP systems that are perfectly sufficent for the vast majority of games out there. All they need is a respectable video card and they can probably hang in there another year.

AGP is still a worthwhile niche.

Also, AGP had nothing to do with your long load times, CrackClocker.

lol. stupid?, its fact. stop being so ignorant. thats no different than saying IBM will recover...(although i admit, this is much more likely )

Intel were on the ball before AMD. you took my quote out of context, i was reffering to the PC standard as a whole - not specifically CPU's. Intel have, as i said previously, a much, much larger influence than what AMD has had. Because of this, Intel have had the R&D, which has given them the edge in CPU's, and, very likely, future CPU's.

Sorry to disappoint you, but the chances of AMD recovering from this are very, very slim.
