XFX GeForce 7800 GS AGP OR BFG GeForce™ 7800 GS OC?????? - Page 2

What is your set-up? If you have a newer Athlon 64 or P4, all you'd need was a new mobo and video card. And if you don't, your money would be better spent upgrading your CPU, as it would bottleneck your GPU anyway.
The final decsion is up to you, but if you want future upgrade-ability, going PCIe would be the way to go.

ok everyone says get a PCI-e card... but he only has an agp slot on his mobo, so that would require buying a new motherboard... let say that will cost ~120$, the the pci-e card for say $250... thats $370 but if would just buy the agp card it would be $300... why spend the extra money for no performance increase?

I have a P4 478 chipset at 3.4mhz. Is that something to keep and still upgrade to PCI express?

With this MOB? I hear this is the top dog right now.

That one doesn't support your CPU and infact I don't see any on newegg that are s478 and PCIe X16 so I would personally wait until you could get a new CPU/MOBO and a PCIe GPU but if you must get a new AGP card get the XFX 7800 GS.

if you have the money to upgrade the mobo,cpu,gpu,and memory, then yes thats a sweet upgrade, but i think the socked 478 cpu will still last a year or two and you can just upgrade you gpu, then save up some money for a yr or 2 down the road and bust out a top of the line system...

This is the only socket 478 mobo that supports PCI-e that i have ever seen... but i have no clue if it is still for sale... personally i dont think its worth it though, stick with you cpu and just upgrade the gpu....

depends on ur socket and so on... you probably dont have to switch a cpu if u just buy a mobo with the same socket and a pci-e card.
