:hello: 
Do you think a XFX (i think it is) Geforce 7800 GS Extreme Edition for £20 (Around $32) is worth it?

Its this one- http://www.amazon.com/Geforce-7800GS-256MB-Extreme-Edit...

How will it compare to a GT430?

if you have an older system that will take an agp card then yes its worth £20 to boost its performance

How will it compare to a GT430?

probably not too well as thats a pci-e 2.0 card and dx11 far as i remember

i put a 7600gs agp card in my partners old pc and it allowed her to play games reasonably well for very little cash

not that she was playing crysis or anything graphically extreme

but again from memory the 7800gs is about as fast as you can put in agp i think

I have a AM2 board that i,m going to pair it with....

So thats one of the fastest AGP cards, well thats a good thing.

wont be far from the fastest agp card

though its quite a while since i had an agp card and thinking about it there may have been a 7900gs or 7950gt agp card

but pretty certain no series 8 agp

its hard to remember all the past series as so many different models

There was another AGP card there, i think it was an PNY 6200 or something.

Not sure if thats any good, it doesn't use active cooling so i assume its a low power card.

yeah the 6200 is a lot slower than the 7800gs

the 7600gs did come in a version with no fan--the one my partner had was a leadtek passive 7600gs

but dont remember any cards after the 7600gs having passive cooling

heres a couple of passive 7600gs if you want silence

had one of the gigabyte ones way back when--really good card though that ones the 256mb not 512mb
