I have a Radeon 9800GT that needs replacement. Looking for some gaming performance. I know that AGP is on its way out but I don't want to upgrade computer or motherboard (this is a second computer). Should I get another 9800GT (on ebay about $55) or what would be a better, newer ATI replacement?
Oops, sorry it is a ATI 9800XT. Computer was fast in its day in 2004 and has been acceptable even today (playing FPS and online games). It is a Dell XPS with Pentium 4, 3.2 I believe. The 9800XT was OEM when I purchased the computer. The monitor started showing red and green dots all over and I believe it was caused by dust. I blew all the dust out but the problem remains. I think the heat killed the ATI card.
Thanks fot the input. I ended up with a Diamond HD4650 512mb DDR3. I guess the 4650's are moving from DDR3 to DDR2 but I found a DDR3 at Fry's for $79 after a $20 rebate. This DDR3 was marked the same price as the DDR2's they had on the shelf.
