PCIE/AGP motherboards

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
My brothers going to buy a new motherboard and he wants it AGP/PCIE, he found this card: MSI K8N NEO3, I checked his cards compatibility with AGR and it works (he has a winfast 6800GT AGP), what do you recommend and what is the best AGP/PCIE card out there?

thanks.

The Asrock Dual is the best with both. Decent overclocking options too, other than the voltage.

The 6800GT would be your best choice. ATI seemed to lay off and nVidia barely gets an AGP release out. You'd be lucky to find anything better than that card unless they decided to do an AGP GS or 7800GT(X).

Is your brother purposely buying AGP? PCI-Exp 16 is the new technology, after he buys that card, they will rarely release anything for AGP. PCI-Exp 16 is already clocking in faster than the AGP's, and it's caught on, many of the PCI-Exp16 parts are and will be cheaper.

He already has the card, he doesnt have the money to upgrade his GPU for the mean time so a AGP/PCIE would suit him for his 6800GT now and something better later on.
