Since I cannot afford to buy a proper graphics card, I am currently planning on buying a "stop-gap" card. A graphics card that will fill up the void till I move out from home and buy my own PC. I have found two offers that could serve this pourpose.
On one hand, I have a offer of 6600 GT for 60 €. On the other, I have a offer for a serially overclocked 6800 GT with two ventilators for 88 €. My question is simple. Is the 6800 GT worth the additional 28 €?
Both graphic cards are AGP and I plan to use either at the 1024x768 resolution.
Most definately sir.The 6800GT sports more pixel pipelines,(16,compared to 8 for the 6600GT).It sports 256 megs of ram with a 256 bit interface,running 2ns ddr3 memory.This is a nice card,but does get a tad warm.But to answer your question,yes,it is worth spending the extra few pounds.Goodluck.

I agree about the 6series being outdated...
I don't know how the prices on vidcards goes in Europe but can't you find an 8series or a HD2600XT? Here, it costs about the same as the 6800GT but performs much better...
