What newer AGP cards unlock?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade from my old 9800 pro and I'm really looking for the best deal. What AGP cards have a good chance to unlock and are less than 230$ CAN. Thanks guys

Well, you could get a 6800LE and most likley unlock it to a GT.

I did have a 6800LE but it wasn't as fast as my 9800pro since it didn't unlock. The 6800GS is worse on AGP since the core is 75MHz slower and it uses the old 130nm process = bad oc'ing. Is there anything in the x800 series maybe unlockable?

I was just wondering the same thing about my X700 Pro--I doubt that it has any secrets to reveal but thought I'd ask as well...

You can mod the pro to an XT: http://www.overclock.net/faqs/20627-...700xt-mod.html
I'd find a bios that you know is definitely AGP or PCI-E first though if you do want to do this

The X850 and X800 Pro Vivo used to have a very high success rate, but many of the cores no longer unlock. Some still do though and also a few of the new range eg. GTO and GT do. These are few and far between now though and you'll need the card to tell if it unlocks.

Your best bet for ATI would be..this..at US $193.00 or for the NVIDIA camp..this..at US $199.00 is worth a look.

just a couple of suggestions for you.
