So thats one of the fastest AGP cards, well thats a good thing. mcnumpty23 September 11, 2012 9:06:47 PM 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 jay_nar2012 September 11, 2012 9:20:21 PM 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. mcnumpty23 September 11, 2012 9:30:41 PM 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 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NX7600GS-Geforce-7600GS-512MB... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GIGABYTE-NVIDIA-7600GS-256MB-... had one of the gigabyte ones way back when--really good card though that ones the 256mb not 512mb Can't find your answer ?
