x800gtp AGP Upgrade?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been out of the hardware scene for awhile and a friend of mine wants to upgrade is old x800gto to something capable of player dx10 games.

Whats the cheapest card that would give the same performance but have a new shader model?

But it's not "cheap"

The cheapest one is $120 before the $15 rebate, last I checked

It's the best AGP card out there PERIOD if he can afford it though
