Hello everyone I need some help finding a good videocard (In stock). I have 199.37 in my payal account so that is my limit. Also I am still on an AGP interface so only those sugggestions. Now I have done extensive research so I know which are the best cards. The problem is that the best cards are out of stock, such as the 7600GT. I would like to get the VC asap so that I can play games like WoW, GW Factions, NFS MW, and Farcry. At this point I am very open minded as far as what I buy, although I have some standards. I can't be using some old DDR2 technology so that rules out the 1650 Pro I think. The 7600GS is a POS, along with the x1600 Pro so they seem to be out. I am considering an 850 even though it is older tech at least its a beast VC that will do well. <br />
<br />
I guess thats all I have to say about this but I reall hope that someone can help me. I want to see what you guys come up with so please don't be shy. I would also REALLY appreciate links. Thanks a lot guys for all the help have a good day.

I'm running this same card although PCIE, it should be similar performance.<br />

It is OEM, and is a little under your budget, but for the price its pretty good. I believe the AGP version is also unlockable to 16pipes, I could be wrong though.

Why would he wanna go from a 7600GT to a 6800GS? Maybe I came too late and he already bought the 7600GT, and had an older card to begin with... <img src="/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Headscratch" class="inlineimg" />

From all accounts , that 6800 that skyman is pointing you to is a great card. The x850xt is also a very good card, comparable to the 7600 gt, but it doesn't suport SM 3.

Well I just tried to buy that 7600 GT AGP but they do not accept PP. I am begging to think that I am not ment to have this card. My sig rig says 7600GT because I pre-ordered the XFX brand. Today I recieved an email saying that my order was cancelled as thet are not sure when XFX is shipping the next order. I found a 1650 Pro for 125 on newegg but that DDR2 kills me. They also have a 512MB RAM for 145, I was thinking that the 512 might make up for the DDR2? One last thing I found a NEW BFG 6800 GT for 145 on Ebay. I was thinking of getting that and OCing the crap out of it lol.<br><br>
Lets pretend I could have any ONE of these for free what should I get.<br><br>
6800GT--145 NEW<br>
1650 Pro 125 MIR NEW<br>
x850 xxx<br>
Thanks for the help fellas please keep it coming.

I'd personally stay away from a 6800gt (ESPECIALLY if you like oblivion). But I'd stay out of it altogether. I'd just pick the 850pro and flash it to xt and possibly get a vf700 like me. Reason for staying away from 6800gt:<br>
You can't use hdr w/ playable rates and it's a lot slower than a flashed 850pro even if its flashed to ultra. Also the aa hit is a lot bigger than the x850pro.

Doesn't have the greatest core clock but, it depends on what games you want to play and how high you want to play them eh

Would you? If you tell him to get a x1950pro, he might as well upgrade to pci-e.

I just decided to buy an eVGA 6800GT it was only 160 shipped and it new so I guess its a good deal. I am just sick of waiting to play my games. I ordered the 7600 GT like a month ago and before that I was using a MX 4000 cause my PNY 6800GT broke. So I still get a lifetime warranty and a good price, its still a good card for performance too. I will buy a really good HSF for it Vmod it and see what I get. Worse comes to worse I can RMA it right. Thank you guys a lot for all the helpful advice and links too. later.
