I want to tide myself over till I can afford to buy a whole new rig next year, unfortunately my old 6800 with its 128mb of standard DDR RAM is beginning to show its age, so I want to know which card you would recommend out of these, I have done the work, you just have to hit VOTE.

In case your interested, I want to be able to play Company of Heroes at a good framerate, and I have 3ghz p4, with 1gb RAM!

Ta guys!

I'm torn between the 7600GS and the X850....I think it would depends on a couple things. A) If you overclock or not. B) the games your prefer to play C) how much your willing to spend for cooling and D) what resolutions/settings you play at.

7600 gt if you can find it near that price is the card to get

i would love to get my hands on one of those, but the cheapest (and in fact only) one I can find is on overclockers.co.uk for £135.11

Basically,
A) Im not a pro overclocker, can just get my head around ATI tool or the basic NV tweak progs.
B) I play mostly strategy and FPS.
C) Im wouldnt mind spending some money on cooling but cant see the point if I could just use the money to get a better card :) 
D)Usually play at 1024x768, but only cos thats all my current card can handle!

Would any of the cards listed above offer a significant performance leap over my 6800 (which I softmodded to unlock all the pipelines and vertex shaders)?

Sofmodded 6800??

NV40?? If so -- TBH I'd say your $$. The cards you listed wouldnt be much of an upgrade.

For some strangely odd reason I agree. I would say the 7600GT would be a worthy upgrade.

Don't bother upgrading; save your money until you can find something better.

7600GT IS £88 ON OVERCLOCKERS !!!

(http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/7600_Series.html) THIRD ONE DOWN !!!
September 20, 2006 9:34:27 PM

Not even the 7600GT. Lets say its on par with the 6800U for all respects...that wouldnt even be a major change. Better off getting something else and dropping more $$ or just waiting.
September 20, 2006 9:35:14 PM

GeForce 7900GS can be had for $179USD on sale. I believe that is in your price ramge and will outperform everything on your list...by far!

Good Luck!
September 20, 2006 9:37:19 PM

7900GS can be had for £120 and an X1800XT for £130

yes, but i have an AGP board!

Sorry, should have made that clearer! things become a lot more problematic huh! I hate those bastard graphics companies punishing us for being stingy and not upgrading our whole system!
September 20, 2006 11:02:24 PM

The 7600GT is available for AGP.
September 20, 2006 11:14:40 PM

Please post the full specs (stock, and after your overclock/unlock) on your current 6800.
September 20, 2006 11:46:06 PM

Don't waste your $$ on AGP. AGP is dead. save yer duckets and do a real upgrade after dx10 is out.
