Default Re: Nvidia 6800GS AGP arrives next week

I'm not going to keep throwing money away everytime they have something new. The 3200 Barton is new and the ram I have. I don't need to switch for at lease 2 more years. Theres aready rumors running around the net saying Nvidia is going to stop making the 7800GTX 512 mb card this Feburay...

But yes, a 6800GS AGP would look to be a very good card for your XP3200 system, and you could also go with the AsRock later and just use the AGP card on it too (another option).

The survey doesn't address the manstream population which is the largest and where the OEMs make the most on their money. Most of the systems out there are OEMs and most owners of OEM machines will never upgarde to high end AGP anyway. I don't see the need for high end from this poll.

Agree. Its not at all profitable for manufacturers to produce high-end AGP-cards. The big money is made on low to midend-cards.

Then i would look to get a 6800GT in a FS/T forum, or ebay, or wait and see if the 6800GS comes out in AGP. I was mentioning FS/T what you have because while the older XP3200 is very nice and fast enough you can get at least 15-20 more FPS in games just by switching out he processor and mobo you have (and nothing else). About 6 months ago, for my wife's gaming rig i sold an XP3200 and K7 NF2 mobo and easily swithed to A64 and i ended up paying a difference of only $40.00 at the end of it all (out of my pocket) - one reason is that a true "authentic" XP3200 is hard to find so i got a good price for it, and that let me easily get a Fry's special A64 mobo/CPU combo (A643200) for $170.00. Instant 15-25 FPS in EVERY game nearly without even changing the graphics card (but we did that too later on). To add to that - the older AXP series though venerable, caps out after about a X800 Pro/6800GT in performance whereas when you put that same graphics card on an A643200 or better you get a huge difference, and it only increases more as you move up in graphics cards quality and speed wise. But yea, you would be fine with a 6800GS AGP and most games.

Actually, if you want a bang for the buck performance part- go SLi on s754. I'm even considering it.

I guess it depends how much you search. While I haven't seen it on newegg yet, a quick search on google pointed me here: http://www.komplett.co.uk/k/ki.asp?sku=316258&cks=PRL

hmmm.... and the article that pointed me there from bit-tech.net was posted on Dec 8. So uh.. /shrug

As much as I need to upgrade my whole system I might would
buy a GS if the price was right for my rig.
I sold my 6800GT a while back and then had to spend my funds
on something else so my system upgrade is on hold.
I could get by with just picking up a 3.2 or 3.4 OC it to about
4ghz and slap a GS in it and get by 12 to 18 more months easy.

The dang prices on the 6800GT "AGP" have went up and
not down.

I would have thought the 6800GT AGP would have dropped
to around 150 bucks by now.
Thought about just getting a used GT but would love to have
a GS because they claim it will be made on the NV40 core and not the 42.
So they may be able to turn on all 16 pipes and get some very high OCing speeds.
Most GT's top out around 380/90 core and 1100 memory.
Makes me wonder though will nvidia be able to get the NV40 core up to the same clocks
as the NV42 runs at. I think this might be an issue. The NV40 cores did not like
running 450+ core speeds.
