While the X850XTpe, X850XT, and 7600GT are long gone, there is still some hope for AGP'ers.

BBA X850 pro dropped to $130 no rebates:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...


For those who want better, 7800GS prices are on the move down: Considering 7600GT AGP is MIA, the BFG below looks good.

$229 AR BFG 7800GS OC (400/1250):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681...

$239 AR eVGA 7800GS (reference speed):

The X850 Pro for $130 bucks is a phenominal deal. Hard to believe you can get such a strong card with those specs and performance for that price. Years ago paid double that for a 6600GT 128 bit interface at 500/1000! The re-release (whatever you call it) of the ATI x800 series cards is a real great deal! Jump on it!

Speaking of bang for the buck for a bomb PCI-E card :D  , I bought one of these a few nights ago. Wow, for eighty-six bucks the price/performance can't be beat. Unless of course you are selling your 1800xt for $85 :p  .

Thanks.

Nice. The $86 X800 GTO 256MB is the best under $100 PCI-e card IMO. But also the 7600GT's for around $110 after rebate are oustanding if the budget can be stretched.

All are good deals.
October 5, 2006 9:44:13 PM

This point is rather moot but ATI had a clearance about 6 weeks ago where the X850Pro was $119 with free shipping. Newegg has shipping putting it at $136. Still a good buy but $119 was a steal.

I'd take the 7300GT DDR3 over that.
October 5, 2006 10:12:57 PM

FTW, that BFG 7800GS now has a $20 MIR, bringing the price down to $210.

Not me. You have to OC way above way above 7600GS performance to beat a stock X800GTO.
October 5, 2006 10:30:06 PM

wow all great deals.. just i wish that Ram prices were getting lower too.
and the worrest part is that i cant get any of those deals out here :( ... maybe when i come back to the states on xmas i will find a great deal on a 7600Gt or something?

Not trying to nitpick, but it was the X800XL (refurb) they were selling for $119, and $140 for the X850pro (new).

Good post paul, I am still on the lookout for a 7600 GT but it looks like I don't have much of a choice and I may have to go in for the x850 or the 7800GS. Considering this is going to put me through the vista and dx 10 transition period is the 7800 the way to go or am I better off with a whole new mobo ?
October 5, 2006 11:30:19 PM

I wonder what the demand is for AGP cards and why the 7600 GT agp card vanished? I know the day will come when AGP is officially gone but damnit im gonna hold on for as long as I can. The reason I had to give up my Ti4200 was because it was not supported by BF2. The way I see things going is AGP cards will be released but only as lower end cards. Does anyone know if AGP cards are more expensive to manufacture than PCI express cards?

One manufacturer and limited supply. Maybe when XFX releases their two 7600GT AGP's we shall see more sites carrying the card.

Not me. You have to OC way above way above 7600GS performance to beat a stock X800GTO.

Read this review. It's of the Inno3d 7300GT GDDR3, but this card is essentially the same as the Leadtek version that's sold here. The review shows the 7300GT scoring about 4900 in 3DM05, which is better than a 7600GS at stock speeds. This review shows an X800XL scoring 5319 in 3DM05. An X800GTO would probably score ~4900-ish, which about the same as the 7300GT. Besides, the 7300GT has better overclocking potential, as seen HERE.

That one site got a massive OC out of it surpassing the stock 6800GS and X800XL. Can you bank on a 600/1600 OC though? Not from what I have seen. This site didn't come close to 600/1600 on their palit or Inno3d. And with them barely beating a stock 7600GS at those clocks, I'd say the stock X800GTO would have the easy lead. And an OC'ed X800GTO could match a stock X800XL too, especially if you don't get a R430 core.
http://www.overclockers.co.nz/ocnz/review.php?id=06vga0...

Don't get me wrong, the 7300GT GDDR3 is a potent fun little card with great gains for the extreme OC'er. But it is far behind a X800GTO from the getgo, and whether or not it can pass the GTO will depend how high you can push the 7300GT.

Edit: Just noticed Digit-lifes charts have a 500/1400 7300GT and it spanks the 7600GS in every game I checked. It also trades blows with the GTO, winning by larger margins than it loses. So, that Leadtek you talked about on Newegg is a fine card for the money based on these charts: http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/digest3d/index.html

I'm only getting 4900 in 3DMark05 with my X800XL. Of course my AMD 2600+ probably isn't helping.

No matter how cheap their cards are , I and the entire Canadian nation of 32 million are boycotting Newegg until further notice... :roll:
October 6, 2006 12:54:13 AM

I just purchased an AGP ATI X1300 256mb for $60.00 retail after the mail in rebates. Not too bad for an older computer that needed an emergency swap.

I would not recommend the X1300 AGP in any situation with the exception of the above ^^^

It filled a cheap need and I kinda figure my wife will never know the difference.
October 6, 2006 12:57:00 AM

Eh? Boycotting New Egg 8O

That is like boycotting hugs and kisses from a loved one :wink:
October 6, 2006 12:57:06 AM

Why?

PS. I want to upgrade my ASUS nVidia 5200FX 128MB/128bit AGP gfx card.

I have a socket 754 AMD Athlon64 3000+ and don't care to upgrade to PCI-Express. I play games at 1024x768 or 1280x1024 res. on a 17" CRT monitor so I don't need excessive res from the vid card when gameing.

I do however want to be able to play current gen games at playable frame rates. (I will never play oblivion as I am more into FPS'ers)

Any ideas on what card would be best for me?

They are boycotting since Newegg does not ship to our brothers to the north!!

For that matter they do not ship to anywhere but the good ole US of A..:)

In terms of raw performance, the X850Pro is quite a bit faster than the 7600GS. However, the 7600GS is a newer card with more advanced features (Pixel Shader 3.0 and HDR, to name a few), it's slightly ($10-15) cheaper, and it uses less power.

However, if I were you, I'd go for the X850 because of its raw performance.

October 6, 2006 1:13:02 AM

kaotao,

It was initially at $139, the last few days of that sale the X850Pro did fall down to $119, the same price as the X800XL which sold out within a few days that you mentioned.

I didn't mention the shop ATI deals, that was someone else. But thinking back I didn't see the X850 pro go that low either. I ordered a X850 pro for $139 less 5%, but cancelled it when they wer slow to ship because I ordered the X800XL for $119 less 5% when they made that free shipping also. So my XL was $113.05 shipped. Anyway, I believe you, but never noticed it go below the $139.

I thought we had free trade with the U.S.? And I don't think there is any tariffs on computer parts?? Other computer companies ship to Canada but their prices are usually nowhere near as a good as Newegg. I ordered from Monarch once and waited two weeks and heard nothing from them, only to find they had still not shipped but had cashed the Visa payment two weeks earlier (plus they added on an additional $67 shipping charge!). I cancelled the order then immediately received two angry mispelt e-mails from Monarch saying how I wasted their time and the box was ready to be shipped on their loading dock already... :roll:
October 6, 2006 1:28:32 AM

yeah, i caught that mistake after I submitted it. though, I guess it wasn't fast enough. :-)

I was shocked when I saw it fall to $119. I have the XP 2400+ with a 6600GT. I was told any GPU faster than that would of been a waste of money as my CPU would of been the bottleneck. Looks like I should of jumped on that deal afterall.

LOL! Can you give more detail. My wife is using my 6600GT.
October 6, 2006 1:46:31 AM

I guess I was a little bit tough on the card but it really is the cheap alternative.

From my little bit of time playing with it (couple minutes of UT2k4 so take what you will away from that) the pic is better than my 9600 and just as smooth/maybe a little smoother but I was able to turn everything up as high as it would go with the exception of course of my resolution. Mind you the 9600 was no slouch at UT but I had only two different categories as high instead of very high..

I still have to mess with it a little (it is still my major souce of a UT fix, until the new machine is built and the new version of UT is shipped ;) ) .

When I set up my wife's new widescreen I made it sound real hard to do. That's why I'm still here...I can even load software and adjust the mouse to her liking :wink: I just thought of something. She's using my Logitech 518!
October 7, 2006 3:02:12 AM

this is to all which one would you go with the x850 pro or the 7800gs?
going to got one this week need to know if the 100 dollars difference is worth it? i mainly play bf2 if that helps.
a b U Graphics card
October 7, 2006 3:19:53 AM

BF2 is not that demanding. But to know if it's worth it, we need to know your system specs as well as the resolution you game at. If it's a pretty fast system like an A64 or P4 3.0GHz, and you have a 19" LCD that runs a native 1280x1024, then yeah it just may be worth the extra money. If you have a P4 2.4B and game at 1024x768 on a 17"CRT, then no it isn't worth the extra money.
October 7, 2006 3:30:02 AM

i have a 3.06p4 with 2 gig of 3200 ddr and a viewsonic 19in crt . i am playing bf2 with current card at 1028x____ cant remember the other.
i need a new card for mine cause i built wife a computer out of spare parts and she needs a better card so i was going to give her my 9800pro 128 and get me something better.
a b U Graphics card
October 7, 2006 3:58:29 AM

Still a decent system there. Good thing to have 2GB ram for BF2. The X850 pro will destroy the 9800 pro in every GPU limited game and could play BF2 maxed out at 1024x768. Shoot, it could possibly do the same at 1280x1024 even, maybe with 2xaa instead of 4xaa. With your system, BF2 as the main game, and The fact that you have a CRT and can reduce the resolution to 10x7 if need be in other games, makes me say the X850 pro would be the better deal for you.
October 7, 2006 3:35:27 PM

thanks for your reply. now i have to order 2 of them started cp this morning and my 9800 went out. stole card from wifes cp and cp started so now i guess i have to buy 2 of them at least 2 are same price as one 7800 thanks again
