I'm looking for the best bang for the buck AGP card in the $40-70 range.
It's a little harder to find info on something like this online currently because AGP is so old now, so I thought I would turn to the most reliable community I know. I'm going to be upgrading to a new system within like 3 months but I want to upgrade my current AGP build on a budget.
I can currently run half-life 2 and CS:S at medium specs at get 20-40 FPS (25-35 mainly)
I want to run both of these games at max or close to max settings with reasonable FPS
I also want to run newer games like Fallout-3 and Oblivion at decent setting (Low with reasonable FPS is fine - I know the limitations of such a build )
I'm going to be upgrading to 2GBs of RAM soon.
A friend was going to sell me a 6800 256MB for $45 (cheaper if I trade him one of my old cards)
To reach my goals what will be the best bang for the buck AGP card within my price range???
I agree with uncfan about saving money
I have a HD 3850 agp card, I get decent performance- COD4 max WIC max MTW2 max all at 1280x1024 res
This is the site I use to decide on what card to get when upgrading- http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php
I dont know if you know about it or not but it helped me decide between the hd 3650 and the 3850
oh and I have a 2.4 ghz quad core and 1 gb of ram
