Hello,

With a P4 3.4e AGP system, I am running 1600x1200 on my LCD (thats the native res) using a BFG 6800GT. I am not ready to move to PCIe yet, so I am curious if I upgraded to a 6800 Ultra or an X850XT if I would see much of an improvement. I play most of the games that I see the benchies report numbers on, which helps. But I wanted to find out from those who may have already made such an upgrade and could tell me if the difference is truly noticable and to what degree.

Thanks!

Overclock your 6800GT to 400/1100, and boom - instant 6800 Ultra.

Same here, running my BFG 6800GT at 400/1100 day-in and day-out!
No stability and/or performance problems whatsoever.
Actually, I truly believe games run more smoothly at 400/1100 vs. stock frequencies!

An X850XT or X800XT-PE will show some decent improvment@1600x1200 , but will cost you a lota cash .
as for cheap alternative , like what the guys said .. overclock you GT to Ultra .
