    Default Best 6800GT PCIe comparison?

    Hi!
    I currently have a Golden sample (overclocked) 6800GT card with 256MB DDR3
    ram. Now I wonder if I was to trade up to PCIe system, what would be the
    cheapest card with at least the same or slightly better performance I could
    get?
    Best Wishes

    I researched AGP + PCIe motherboards some time ago and I seem to remember
    that there was a significant video performance compromise. Hopefully it's
    no longer an issue, but you might want to check it out.

    A 7600 GT would keep up to it and a 7900 GS would outright smoke it.

    This is going to be a couple of spammers (or maybe just one). I have deleted their signatures and will ban their accounts and IP addresses if it continues.

    A 7900 or X1900 series card or a DX10 card would be a good upgrade. A 7600 series card would be a similar level of performance. As far as the performance difference of same-model PCI-E vs. AGP cards, there is none. AGP has more than sufficient bandwidth for modern GPUs.
