However, I melted my 6800 when the fan bearings died. (at standard clock speeds.)
A year and a half later I'm sure he's already solved his problem.

New poster, low post count, bumps old thread... I smell bot.

Alternatively, you could get something more up to date (but not nvidia) if you go with a Radeon 4650 or 4670:


The 7950GT is a pretty decent card though. Not real fast by todays standards but still respectable enough to play some games. A 7900GT will run Crysis at medium settings, and a 7950 is faster than that.
I'm pretty sure you're dead on there... ATI definitely had the last word in the AGP space
