I am looking for an older GPU to pair up with an older computer I just got. It is a pentium 4 1.6 ghz; so I was hoping to find something like a 9800 pro/xt to put in it. However, I havent had much luck finding anything like that for cheap online. Anyone have any recommendations for a good AGP card for ~$50?
eBay is your best bet. There have been some rare deals on new ones , I have seen both 9800 pros and 6600GT's for $59 brand new, but it was a rare short lived deal. Otherwise you typically pay a premium for these old cards trying to buy them new. ANyway, I agree with your price point as it's just not worth putting more than $50 into a 1.6GHz rig. And for $50, a used 9700 pro, 9800 pro, or 6600GT is better than a new 9600 pro or GF6200.
