What is the best AGP 8X graphics card out there. I am thinking the 7800 GS. What about ATi. I am going to use this in a home theater pc. Any suggestions. I like the 7800 GS but can not decide on which brand. Any suggestions there as well. How will this perform against my current card which is a BFG 6800 GT OC.

I'd say 7800GS.<br><br>
However, a new motherboard with PCI-E might be well worth considering.

The Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ would be the best, but too expensive. Even the normal 7800GS is too expensive IMO. I had one, and I liked it a lot, but sold it and got my 6800 Ultra. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> I have seen no difference other than in benchmarks, I get the exact same FPS in Far Cry and FEAR.

K, well I dont see the need for a new mobo. I have absolutely no probs with my current system. I plays all my games without issues. I just want to put the best of the best on the 754 platform. Am upgrading everyting starting with the GPU. Im into gameing but also want to run my home media from this puter. Its by no means slow and I think that a 7800 GPU + a 3700 CPU with 3 GB corsair xms pro memory and vista will suite me nicely without upgrading my mobo.

Given those expenses you plan, the mobo would be the first on my list for an upgrade <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
But then again, we all have different ideas what works best
