Sapphire HD 3850 AGP, the only contender.

EDIT: Cheapest I can see it right now is at Scan, £80.24 + delivery.

I have mine clocked at 800/1000, (stock: 668/828) - if you intend to OC the card I'd highly recommend these (also available from Scan).

HR-03-GT
+
Noctua NF-B9

= Game won

My 3850 ran at 69C idle with the stock HSF, and now idles at 33~35C, and max 55C under load.

Hehe, just noticed this is in the Nvidia forum - unless they release a new AGP card (incredibly unlikely at this point) I think the HD3850 will remain the fastest/best option.

If you add on the extra £45 for the above mentioned cooling, you start to creep towards having enough for a new budget PCI-E rig, something to keep in mind.

The best nvidia card was the 7950GT but yeah, you can get the 3850 in AGP, so why would you want the 7950GT

What are the system specs for his computer? May want to make sure the card isn't going to be bottlenecked too badly.
