Try dealtime. I looked yesterday and they had a BFG 7800GS AGP for like $349.

whats the specs on this 7800GS AGP?

I believe it's 16 pipes, 350 core, 1000 memory. The OC versions are 400/1100 I believe.

That puts it on par with or faster than the 6800Ultra I believe.

Um, I just checked dealtime and it aint listed anymore. But if I recal correctly, it was 350 core, 1100 mem, and 12 pipes. Though the benches show it coming in between the 6800Ultra and 7800GT, leaning more towards the GT side if I recall correctly.

If this card does end up performing as such, I just might get one. Should be a nice up from my current 6800GT.

so it shouldnt be any faster than my 6800GS @ 420/1.1 with 16 pipes and 6 shaders.

Guess I was wrong, 375 core, 1GHZ mem on 16 pipes and 6 vertex unit. Same PCB as the 512MB GTX, and based on G70 core (obviously), meaning 110nm- possible a pretty good OC potential when using a beefy HSF. I just wonder if we could unlock any pipes on this card. Sure would rock.

According to anand it DOES fall in between the 6800Ultra and 7800GT in most tests. My 6800GT is running at 400 core, 1.18 mem and I'm sure (judging by the results of Anand's performance tests) that this new card would be a noticable step up from my 6800GT. Even better if it'll oc and allow for unlocked pipes and vertex shader(s).

Is Feb 10 the day this card is supposed to be announced and available? Any word on that? I didn't see anything in Anand's review.

I just got my BFG 7800GS OC AGP two days ago, off the shelf of CompUSA. ;) The stock speeds on the BFG GF7800GS OC is 400/1250. According to the box, the standard speeds are supposed to be 375/1200.

Benchies? Pictures?

Does it run pretty hot with that heatsink?

Actually, I just posted a mini-review of the GF7800GS and some benchmarks comparing it against a X850 XT: http://ckturbo128.proboards4.com/index.cgi?board=computerhardware&action=display&thread=1138544120

As for the heatsink, it's actually not that bad at all. It's somewhat quiet and efficient for cooling. I was able to OC the 7800 GS up to 480/1380 with stock heatsink. :D

thx for the info & the great review! once these get down to $300 will have to get one.
kinda hard to justify it to the wifey with a 6800gt @ ultra. though she will get the gt so maybe i can work it....:)

Wow thanks! Thats some nice performance numbers!

I have a 6800GT and it wont go over 410/1000
so i think because i only have money for one thing
and im desperate for some fps increase..

the 7800GS looks like a good buy :D

Dude thanks alot really appreciate the information.
For some of us trying to squeeze a little life out of some agp boxes (Wife) this will be just what the doctor ordered as long as they can be had.

Again thanks very helpful info and nice performance numbers from your tests.

Just waiting for to get reviewed first.

I could really use a new AGP card to replace my 6800nu that will not OC. I do have the extra pips running but I have a few games that are not perfectly smooth and for some reason I need it to be smooth!!! :(

I have just completed an addendum to the mini-review, which includes more pictures of the 7800 GS, as well as some more benchmarks comparing the X850 XT and the 7800 GS. It can be found in this thread:

Nice update. I really wish I could afford this card. Even with my lowend CPU it would still be a good upgrade.

i have some questions, and after analyzing his reviews and my benchmarks the to the best of my ability, i think i came up with the answer.... would it be worth it for me to upgrade???

since i pull about 12,900 in 3dmark'03, 5,500 in 3dmark'05, and 2,500 in 3dmark'06 at my everyday 24/7 speeds, i think i've decided that it's just not worth it, i'd like to see some other people's insight on this, but for the money, and not to mention the hassle, i doubt i'd benefit very much

To me I don't really care about 3D Marks. They are nothing. Whats important to me is real game performance.

yeh.... but obviously, 3dmark benchmarks provide a way to judge relative performance, because things perform close in any 3dmark means that they'll probably perform extremely close in games also... the score itself means nothing, but i doubt this 7800 gs would be much of an upgrade for anyone who has a 6800 gt/ultra and is on a budget (if you still have an AGP system, you are a on a budget i'm sure like i am)

Never trusted 3D Marks. Both ATI and Nvidia have made drivers that perform good in 3D Marks and no good in games. To me they need to just make drivers that perform better in games.

The 7800GS AGP looks to be a nice upgrade from a 6800Ultra since it is faster then the X850XT in nearly ever game ,as long as the price is not to high ,should be around $250 because if it is over $300 ,you be better off getting a Evga 7800GT for $359 that comes with a free N-force4 SLI motherboard for free.
