Default Need an AGP upgrade to a GeForce FX 5700 128 mb

I'm constrained by:

P4 2.8C Northwood
1 GB PC3200 blah 3-3-3-8 blah ram
Sparkle 250W power supply (no 6-pin PCI-E, just molex)
Low profile 1-slot SFF case

My Gigabyte 6800GT AGP has the fancy heatpipe/fan mount on top so it's too thick and too long.

Just wondering if anything nVidia nextgen is a viable solution. Otherwise I might have to buy from the competition.

Fanboyism FTL

go with whatever is better and feels no pains about it.

Find out the cpu bottleneck point before you buy though ,No need to waste money on a high end agp.


Wait , Low profile AGP "next gen" !! How much choice do you have there?

Well, nextgen would be anything higher than GeForce FX technology. Probably a 7300GT would fit the bill, but a 6600GT would be way cheaper.

yep. and the 6200 is not an upgrade from the 5700.

It sounds like it's time for you to get a new computer.

But it wont fit, he needs a low profile card.

used to have a xfx7950 512mb agp. POS! .. died after 10min, and replacement card also died after just 10min. So there are faster solutions, but dunno if they are what I would consider reliable >_>

I guess I don't know what "low profile" means in this case then.

Low profile cards refers to the physical size of the cards.

Like this one for example:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814129076


Due to the PCB being so small, you can't fit highend hardware on them (with lots of ram and huge coolers) , thus you are limited to lowend budget cards. You often see them in simple workstations or office computers.

Even if Treason could fit a highend AGP card in his puter, his PSU would be too weak. The xfx cards I had required 18 or 20amps iirc, that would require a minimum of 218w on the 12v rail to the gfx card alone.

Damn!

To OP: Why don't you just upgrade already?

Default Re: Need an AGP upgrade to a GeForce FX 5700 128 mb

to OP, been looking a bit for ya, nVidia dont have any agp versions of there 8xxx series and up. Couldnt even find a 7xxx series lowprofile agp.
If you had pci-e then a 8400 would be best i supose (dunno if 8500 is lowprofile, but it's the same gpu as 8400) I red in an article that the 8400 has some decent OC potential, but to get the most out of it you have to V-mod it and slap a big cooler on it.

So maybe you should build a new more future proof rig. Or perhaps buy a used one.
