I'm looking to upgrade my old 9800 pro (games getting slow these days...) I got a 6800LE, off ebay cause im a ******, and it didn't unlock, + needed to be oc'ed like mad to even be on par with my 9800 pro. So sold that card and i'm looking again. Im looking at potentialy a 6800 vanilla or maybe some x800 gpu. Cant spend more than 250 CAD. Give me a card and a store and i'll 'love you long time'. Thanks guys

I'd upgrade to a new mobo with PCIe instead of spending $200 on a good card, then upgrading the mobo in a few months. Then the AGP card would be a waste.

no, u can get the 6800GS in AGP... I thought it launched last week... I haven't personally seen it, but It is coming out in AGP if it isn't already. I'd look around and get one of those.

Ya it came out on agp but the agp version is crap compared to pci-e. The agp version has a 75mhz slower core and uses the old 130 nm process which means it won't be the oc'ing beast that the pcie 6800gs is
