Hi again, everyone,

I'm putting forth more energy at looking for a possible replacement for my Ti4200 GeForce 4 AGP w/128 MB RAM card and one that caught my eye was the ATI X700 Pro AGP w/256 MB RAM, but being the novice that I am, I have no clue if it would be a step up or down or how radical of a change in performance I might expect to see.

So, given that the various numbers tend to boggle me and that the intended use is for World of Warcraft and Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War, what do the experts say? I'm *trying* to keep under $200, but the upper limit is a bit flexible.

Mel

If you can afford the almost $200 US, an X800 GTO can be found for under $200 online (try newegg.com), and will absolutely destroy both the X700 PRO or 6600 GT which are a few bucks less.

Only better option if you have the cash - pretty much the best card available for AGP is the X800 XT, which can be found for $250 if you look hard enough.

How would an X800 Pro rank with the cards you just mentioned? I have a way to get it wholesale, so that puts it within my reach.

A X800Pro is on pair with the X800GTO.

Yep, basically the same card with minor clockspeed differences.

Just thought I'd throw in my tupence worth. I have a PC with an athlon xp 2400 and a gf4 ti4200 128mb. and a laptop with a turion 1.6ghz and an x700 radeon mobility. and the laptop is much better at playing games, smoother and more capable.

also i too am upgrading my PC, which has an AGP x4 slot, to an x1650 pro 512mb, i knot its an AGP8 but it'll work in an agp x4 slot.

hope this helps.

a hd3850 AGP can be had for as little as $110-ish at newegg, obviously u have to meet some power requirements, look it up, but still it would be a better idea considering it is cheaper.
