AGP Video Card upgrade: Is this good?

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?

  1. Yea, it's pretty good card for the price.

    Huge upgrade from a 9700.
  2. 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.

    Seconded.
  4. If you get the card and want to unlock it here is the link to unlock it.

    You burn the ISO image to a cd then boot from the cd. The menu comes up and promts you. Pretty straight forward. Easiest video card bios flash that I have ever done.
