Im on a pretty tight budget right now. Im really only looking to spend between 100-140 dollars on a video card. I have agp slots only, my mobo is a little old. I just need something that will play my games decently until i can upgrade to pci-e.
No doubt its better, I was just trying to find a card in the same basic price range. At about $10-$20 he could really step up into the next range. Though he said $100-$140, all the cards he picked were sub $100 so I tried to find a card close to that.
The card you picked was not far beyond his $140 max.
All up to the poster how much he is willing to panhandle for those extra FPS. ( I would be on the street corner saying "Excuse me sir, but do you have an FPS you could spare for the poor.")
I have the same question. Before i start i live in the Philippines, so cost wise it's unlikely that i would be buying from any internet reseller, we've got tons of shops here in manila. But my problem is that AGPs are almost extinct here, there are still some out there but good ones are VERY HARD TO FIND.
Im Fairly happy with my set-up, until the new Splintercell and Battlefield came out. Now i need to Upgrade my whimpy FX5500.
As for the pipiline and shader count, none of the manufacturer site have them listed
I cant find any review that would help me in deciding. So i hope you guys would help me. At first i was leaning towards the 7300GT-Sonic because of the DDR3 and the power connector which is a 6 pin (that my PSU has in a sepparate rail). But then i found the x1650, and thought that i could be a btter choice since i would be gaining 200Mhz on the core but give up 200Mhz also on the memory, which is a DDR2. The x1650 pro also has it's own power connector but its just a regular MOLEX one, which i could live with if it would perform better than the 7300GT-Sonic.
