Default Need advice on 6800GT AGP replacement





So my 6800GT just bit the dust.

I have to replace it with another AGP card. Would getting another 6800GT be the way to go, or is there another card with similiar performance that has a better price/performance ratio?

Also, can I even get another 6800GT AGP, my searching doesn't show newegg or mwave selling them

Sorry, I've been out of the loop when it comes to hardware, and I can't really seem to find any good info about AGP cards out there.

I think another 6800GT would be a good buy.

You Should really try the card in another computer before you go buying another one. I have a 6800 that displays the same artifacts as yours and i tried it in another computer, and it works fine.

May not be the case with yours, but you never know.

It has become increasingly difficult to find 6800s for AGP at a reasonable price. The last pieces are selling at outrageous prices.

TheInquirer (take it as a rumor) reports today that NVidia will introduce the 6800GS also as an AGP part in a couple of weeks. It might not be as fast as your GT but it should be a cost effective stop gap solution for the next year.

Thanks for posting that about the 6800GS. I have been watching for this and all I can say is... yay! Hopefully they won't charge a premium for the AGP cards and hopefully they'll be on par with the PCIe speeds.

There are lot of people with decent system (Athlon64, Pentium IV-C) who don't have any necessity to upgrade but the video card.

Neglecting this part of the market would be a huge mistake. Even more when your main competitor has announcement its intention to bring out some more AGP cards.

If you live in the UK I'll sell you mine.
