Hexus is reporting about 7800GS AGP and NVIDIA talked about 7800GS PCI Express.

I think of graphics cards like women.
You can either snap up the one your ok with to lose your load off now and then, or wait for someone better to come along..... running the risk that they may not come along at all. Be sat waiting forever.

I just don't understand why anyone would think that Nvidia wouldn't release a 7xxx series AGP. There are just to many folks out there with AGP system that would spend quicker for a new Video card then they would for a new Video card, MB and probably CPU.

Now I'm going to have to wait to see what's up with this card before purchasing that 6800GS AGP I was looking at.

I hope it never sees the light of day so I don't have to put up my 1 week old BFG 6800 GT OC AGP on eBay for a loss! Surely you understand my predicament... and what the previous poster said about video card and women.... omg, that is so true. Story of my life man.

if you would have been smart you should have gotten EVGA, step up program would be great in your situation :-p

Well crap, I didn't know about the eVGA step up program.... now I do. Doesn't mean I'm not smart, it's not exactly well known!! Would have been perfect, oh well.

WOW!!! Didn't think they'd release one. Not sure if it will be worth upgrading to though with DirectX10 on the horizon. I wonder how much it will go for?
