Video Card Cunundrum

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking into selling my 6600GT and purchasing a newer card.
I've been looking at the 6800GS mainly, seeing as 6800GT's seem to be rare for AGP. I'm thinking about buying an XFX card, as I've had good experience with them in the past. So the main question is, anyone have first hand experience with the XFX 6800GS AGP? Also, what aftermarket coolers fit it?
Thanks <3

You can unlock the 6800gs and an unlocked, non overclocked 6800gs is better than a non-overclocked 6800gt. XFX is supposed to be a good brand. Go for it.

I have an XFX 6800GS, but I've not been able to use it cause I'm STILL waiting on my replacement mobo. Although I have heard countless positive comments about the performance of the card, so I say go for it man.

What about aftermarket cooling. I was dissapointed in the layout of my 6600GT, the HIS got in the way of me using a Arctic Cooler, or practicly any aftermarket cooler besides the Zalman. Same situation with 6800GS?

Get a NV Arctic Silencer or Zalman.
