AGP Video Card upgrade: Is this good? Tags: Graphics Cards Computer PCI Express Graphics Last response: December 19, 2006 10:10 PM in Graphics & Displays Share snyderm December 19, 2006 7:08:46 PM Hello all. I just helped a buddy of mine upgrade his computer video card from an 9700 (pro?) AGP to an X800GTO AGP. I am pretty good at knowing which PCI-Express cards are good, but I am not so good with AGP cards. I advised him to get the X800GTO AGP For $135 (US) on newegg. Did I do good? Or was there something better I should have done? It should be a pretty decent upgrade, shouldn't it?

Huge upgrade from a 9700. caamsa December 19, 2006 7:50:35 PM If you get the red sapphire one with the larger cooler (the only one I think newegg has now) It unlocks to 16 pipes. It has the 430 core.
