I'd say bite the bullet and get a PCI-E mobo and a new 7800GT for $300, cause that's a steal of a deal... but the cost of the new board kinda offsets it..
Well, apparently, nVidias hardware fails to decode the instructions properly, but any problems it causes arent visually detectable.

EDIT: The only issue that I know of is that you cant have HDR and AA enabled at the same time.

I run CS:S with the new map that supports HDR and I run it fine with it enabled and max AA. Also Lost Coast runs perfect with max AA enabled too. So I don't know where you heard or read that problem but speaking from experience I never had it.

Back to topic: Get the 6800GT!

what? you are crazy, lol. You say people dont read through threads and you didnt even read through THIS thread. 7800GT is ONLY PCIE! He has an AGP board and just wants a card to hold him over for 1 year until he can get PCIE.

The X800 was an all-in-wonder. Did you need the tuner?
