    Default Geforce GT 6800 OC AGP or what else??

    Hey everyone, this is my first post. I recently rebuilt my computer and am running a Pen 4 3.2 1gig ram. I unfortunately bought an AGP Motherboard. So, I need to find out the best AGP cards there are because I really dont want to rebuild.

    The best I can find is the Geforce GT 6800 OC AGP 256 mb card. I looked at the X800xl but am not sure which is better, or if there is anything else out there. If anyone could help, that would be great!!

    Very shortly, there will be the 7800GS AGP card that will be the top dog. If that card is out of your budget, then get the 6800GS AGP. Both of those cards are the best out for being futureproof the longest in the AGP standard.

    There are lots of variations too so look carefully before you buy if you go this way:

    Pointofview 7800GS (Reviewed at Guru3D) is 375/1200

    BFG 7800GS OC(Reviewed at bit-tech) is 400/1250

    XFX 7800GS (Reviewed at Bjorn3D) is 440/1300

    being 16/6 and non unlockable certainly reduces the options a tad but the oc potential seems to be there.

    At the stock 375/1200 this card hardly out performs the 6800GT, if budget is a concern you wouldn't lose much if you got a 6800Ultra or GT or GS

    Many of the 6800GS AGP versions are unlockable, but I have no clue if the 7800GS AGP is, I have not read the reviews. As for different speed cards, these 6800's ocerclock so well that the cheapest version will almost certainly keep up with the factory overclocked versions. My cards run no sweat @ 530/1300 and they are factory 450/1100.

    Only one or two problems. I only have a 400 Watt power supply. I read one review of the 6800 ultra and is said it requires a 480 power supply. Does this require less power than the ultra?

    Also, what other requirements should I check?

    either way you should upgrade your PSU, but it should power any 6800 series @ stock speeds.

    What does unlockable pipelines mean, and is the 6800 GS better than the 6800 GT?

    Dude instead of ragging on everyone componenets how about helping them out? I mean no disrespect but saying to everyone that this component is crap and that component is crap is kinda annoying.

    I mean I myself am just a casual gamer and I am very happy with some of the cards you say are crap. My x800GTO, 9800Pro and GF3 Ti200 are all serving me well.

    Isn't the art of overclocking simply about getting the most out of your components? I mean if you can only afford a cheap card you have to find a way to make it work even if that means playing a game at 640x480 or 800x600 right?
