View Full Version : Best AGP for $150 or less?

06-23-06, 09:37 AM
Kinda thinking of surprising a friend of mine with something to replace his 9800XT with but I don't want to spend a ton. I can't even seem to find new 6800 series AGP cards. Anyone have a suggestion here? Seems like he'd want to get at least a 6800GT in order to see a real performance increase over the XT.

I think once the 7600GS comes out in AGP that will be THE AGP card to buy. Its scheduled for release next month as far as I know.

Yeah but for how much $$?

Might look on Amazon for a used 6800GT I bet you could get that for under 150 easy!!

How would the 6800GT compare to an X850XTPE? Specifically speed-wise.

Fwiw, my x800 is faster, in my opinion, than my old 6800 ultra OC. So the x850 will be faster than the GT. No SM3.0 but it is definitely faster.

Wait for the 7600GS. Should be out in the next couple of weeks.
