Bfg 6600 Oc, Agp, 256mb Ddr

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, question. I want to upgrade my corrent video card from 9800 Pro to BFG 6600 OC, AGP, 256MB DDR. Is that a good upgrade since my system is still a AGP system with an old AthlonXP. I get recommeneded alot to 6800GTS and 7800 or 7900 but they are still expensive and way out of my price range. I just need something to use for now and I heard the 6600 cards where a great card.

I think your 9800 pro is better than a 6600 because a 6600 gt is a little more powerful than your 9800 pro.

I think so, but honestly I hate ATi drivers, they never work the way they should. I always been an NVIDIA card owner even have my GeForce 3 Ti200. Been happy with it, but the 9800 Pro is a nice card. However dealing with the drivers get me mad all the times. lol I never really see any true performance with it anyways. However, that is just my opinion. In matter of fact my 5700LE show better graphics on my fiance PC than the 9800 dose in my PC. lol

I was going to recommend the Apollo GeForce 6800 AGP 8x on newegg. I can't get link cause my proxy blocks newegg here. Just search for that. I think it's like 160 shipped. I have one and it unlocked to 16/6 and OC'd to 440/850 on the stock cooler. My cousing got the same card and we got 16/5 on his with 435/820 for the OC. It's cheap, it works, and with a little tweaking, they work great.

maybe you could sell your 9800 pro and save for a 6800 Gs. Then you will see a huge improvement.

I think its only the number of pixelpipelines.One has 12 and the other one has 8.But I think you can unlock the two of them to 16 but I'm not really sure.
