So im finally retiring my geforce ti 4400, and im wondering which card to go with in this 130 - 160 range. Here are a few ive narrowed, but Im willing to listen to advice on something completely diferent. Ive been looking for comparisin charts, but I never see detail on the GS or extreme cards.
I have an x800 gto in my agp system and it works great. I payed $175 for it this spring and it's down to about $125. It's an awsome card. You could get an x800xt which is the next step up from the x800gto. But the Gto is fine. I was able to unlock the extra 4 pipelines and overclock it a little bit.
Otherwise, I would say go for a 6600gt or a 7800gs. Yeah the 7800gs is expensive, but it is the best and last agp card ever designed.
So the 6800GS is better then the extreme? That might be the one I go with then, because that price is perfect for me. The 7600 you mentioned I could probably do money wise.....but is it that noticible of a diference then the 6800GS?
If its enough of a diference I wouldnt mind paying out another 40$ for something I would be happier with, and be able to stay with longer.
thanks for the replys guys
on the ati thing Ive owned 2 ati cards in my life, and neither time I was that happy with. It was a long time ago when they always had issues with drivers, which I dont believe is a problem anymore......so changing back over to ati isnt out of the question.....Ill take a look at the 2 cards you recommended.
