I'd batter them in a nice beer batter. Or possibly just your basic pancake batter.

Mmm, pancakes.

Go to http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/graphics/charts.html and put the different cards in, depending on what games you want to play.

As a rough guide, the 6800GT (which is close to an XT if I remember correctly) scores 1210 in 3dmark 2006 at 1024x768, the X1600 Pro scores 802 and the 7600GS scores 1118.

In Half-life 2 Ep 1 at 1024x768, the 6800GT scores 78fps, the X1600Pro scores 49.0 fps, and the 7600GS scores 68fps.

Looking at the specs, actually, the 6800XT is basically a cut-down 6800GT, less pixel pipes - it's a slower-clocked but better-architectured version of the 6600GT.

Of those you've posted I'd definitely go with the 7600GS.

Hope this helps!

If you can try and get a 7900 GT or GTO failing that an XFX 7800GTX would most likely give best result, I'd reckon.

You can check it out on this site if you wish and let us know what you think.

Edit : Bugger, I just realised you were after an AGP card, I'll go have a look.

>Fastest AGP card

Dunno. There's at least one other thread on this forum dealing with it - I suggest looking there! ;) 

I believe the current AGP champ is a X1950Pro?

Depending on how much you want to spend and how long you intend to keep the card for I would recommend either of these simply because I’ve had a couple of XFX cards and never had a problem and found them to be quite fast, and my best mate has tried several BFG cards with similar results i.e no probs and they ran quite fast.

The 6800 would be the one I'd go for because it's faster and cheaper, I only link to that site because it shows the specs for both cards.

HTH :)

Don't think that's a GeForce though is it? :roll:

Best Batter? The "Master" of course. Or is that "bater".



Yes I know spelling is off but its still humorous. bah.

As for the actual question.... Get the 7600GS and if possible find a Palit brand one. From what I've read they overclock better than the other two cards and if you want to try a little pencil mod or even have the soldering skills to add a resistor then it OCs like mad.

***Disclaimer***: I accept no responsibility for anyones loss of GPU or other equipment due to "modding" of their equipment. Its hella fun and a kick when it works well and very sad when it doesn't go quite so well :)

What are your computer specs? You might be buying a video card that you will not even be able to use it potential performance.

If your system can handle the latest and greatest video card then I'd wait a couple more weeks. The X1950Pro AGP edition should be out and this will be the fastest AGP card out there.

You might want to see if you can't pick up an X800XL or X800GTO. These 2 cards are better than any of the original 3 that you picked out.

Depending on the cost, a 6600GT might be the way to go.

The XT (eXcremenT) for Nvidia is NOT the same as XT (eXTreme) for ATI.

Here's the order that I believe the cards are in.

X1950Pro > X800XL > X800GTO >= 7600GS > 6800XT >= 6600GT > X1600 Pro

Out of the three you mentioned, I'd get the 7600GS.

:twisted: As this is the Nvidia section harping on about ATi cards is just wrong IMO, but then as ATi will soon be dead and gone (Hoorah for AMD!!) I suppose the fanbois can be allowed a final fling, before the cold clammy hands of death encircle the corporate throat of what was once a crappy spewer of graphic dross. :twisted:
October 26, 2006 4:10:02 AM

Ati is alive and well even after getting bought by AMD. How'd you think they'll be able to release their new R600 series if they'd be dead in a few more months?

Nah u gotta get the Drakes brand beer batter, its all i use.
October 26, 2006 4:56:45 AM

Don't buy a 6800 anymore, they can't compete with the other 2.
October 26, 2006 4:59:33 AM

Never heard of Drakes. Is it that good?
October 26, 2006 5:38:45 AM

Oh yeah, really cheap and makes a wonderful thin coating of crispiness.
When you use drakes you taste your food, not the thick breading.
