6800GT for 7800

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is it worth me selling my (new on the way to me in the mail) 6800GT to buy the agb 7800 card? Will it come in a 7800GT/AGB ?

It depends on if your wanting the new card or not. The 6800Gt is no slouch, but the 7800GS will be faster. It has the same number of pipes but is clocked higher. Its the best AGP card out there right now. I have not heard of a AGP version of the 7800Gt.

I don't think so. Just OC your 6800GT, and save up so you can switch to PCIe. AGP is dying... not dead yet, but getting there.

Yes, the obvious choice is to overclock:



A 6800 GT overclock to (ultra's speed) 400/1100 can/could be faster and/or on par with a 7800 GS;

Sahder Ops: 6400 / GS: 6000
Pix Fill Rate: 6400 / GS: 6000
Tex FillRate: 6400 / GS: 6000
Vertex Ops: 600 / GS: 656.25

So, time to OC.

the only AGP version 7800 series is tthe 7800GS and it's better than the 6800gt, if u can spare the time and money, it's worth it IMO.
