Another jealous lowly PCI-E user in denial of the DOMINANCE.


Important to note: If any SUPERIOR APG users are out there, to install an ATI series AGP card in windows 7 you must download the Vista 9.10 AGP hotfix drivers to your computer & extract them to a directory. Then, install the driver directly from device manager using the ATI directory and you're all set.
Post the detailed WEI rating then. Go to the Windows Experience Rating screen, at the bottom right, under the HD rating, is a printer icon and a link to the detailed info. This shows your hardware, etc. Post that and then you can post here. Failure to post that just proves you are full of sh1t.

Benchmarks here show the PCI-E version of the card, which should be faster, is slower than a 8800 GT! Lay off the crack, please.

Also the 512mb 3850 AGP would only perform less then PCI-E if the full APG bus was used, which it is not, so there is no differeence. Also your benchmarks are hardly blowing anything out of the water sir.

To remain relevant to the Windows 7 discussion, perhaps the reason an AGP 3850 card has a better experience rating then an 8800 PCI-E card is because AGP is SUPERIOR to PCI-E in Windows 7.

This is quite possibly the dumbest thing I have ever read.

Thank God for that. And I was thinking about picking up W7 next week. Instead I'll spend the same money on marijuana and crack.

ABSOLUTELY a good decision Bob

If you download Windows Live email, and the Vista Aero shake, snap, and peek add ons to your current Vista Ultimate sp2, you will pretty much have Windows 7.
