My roommates crappy Dell OEM 9700pro died on him. He only wants to spring about $150 for a card. I'm not too up to date on whats the best buy in the midrange, so I'm asking here. It can be any brand or manufacturer as long as its AGP.

Trust me when i say this, Tell him to spend 50$ more and get a 6800GS

Its basicly a 6800GT but its only 200$

I would be all about the 6800GS, but I believe it's PCIE only.

u should be able to find a used 6800 (plain) AGP for about that price.. search around the buy/sell forum and also try on forums.anandtech.com . they have a pretty active for sale forum.
