Thinking if I should upgrade my 6600GT AGP to one of the newer AGP cards. Going PCI-E is out as I couldn't afford it.
I have an Intel P4 Prescott 3000Mhz sitting on a Gigabyte GA-8I848PM (small form-factor) mobo with 2GB RAM on it.
Not sure if I should choose the X1950 or a 7900? Or 2600? Or Pro, GT, GS, XT, whatever, so any help would be much appreciated. Gaming-wise I play Oblivion, Dawn of War, bit of EVE in the past, so that sort of thing, not the latest DX10 stuff. Any help for an old-timer would be most welcome.
Should also say the case is an Antec Sonata. Won it in a competition so have been upgrading it for years (new case, memory, graphics card, hard drives, memory, think only the mobo and CPU are the same, although I've changed the heatsink on the CPU twice).
You can play Oblivion at 1280 x 1024 with HDR enabled and no AA and decent fps on the 2600XT. However, on a 20" widescreen or larger that card will stink. It's excellent for playing high-def video, in an HTPC, but it's not a gaming card.
