I have no choice but to go with this card but i was wondering if there is any other option beside upgrading my mobo and everything else...maybe getting a ati card that is better than that 7800gs that is for agp...I would appreciate any help...thanks

i was also wondering if i would be able to run bf2142 on high with this card

x1950pro is the best agp card right now, but I'm pretty sure its still overpriced. The agp ones are close to $300 where the PCIX ones are uner $200.

I hear that ati is suposed to release a 1950xt agp.

Don't know if they really will or not though.............

7900gs is as good as it gets for you.

A 7600GT AGP performs about the same as a stock clocked 7800GS AGP and is cheaper ($190 vs $236) and much better for price/performance.

On Newegg, the x800GTO AGP is also an excellent value ($135) and performer if you can live without Shader Model 3.0 support.

I say stay with the 7800GS 16 pipelines and faster, i doubt the 7600GT AGP(if you can find them) would be better. the 7800GS only run 200+ at newegg.

If you can try to find the GAINWARD BLISS 7800GT AGP it has a full 24 pipelines and is basically the 7900GT a la AGP.

If you are in the USA, BestBuy retail stores have the Visiontek X1950 pro AGP in stock for $299. Overpriced, but it's way better than a 7800GS and worth it if the rest of your system is up to par.

I'd wait for this one to appear in stock. 512MB and $250 shipped. It just may end up being the best performing AGP gaming card that will ever be made.
