What we need to know your motherboard AGP or PCI-Express compatible?


02-02-2007 20:22:57

AGP compatible.

Okay. Now since you have an AGP compatible motherboard, the best card for you would be the BFG 7800GS OC. Your motherboard will not be able have any other higher-end card. No GTX's. You're going to have to make sure you have enough space in your case/motherboard. The card is pretty big. And make sure you have a decent power supply.

I'm using this video card right now, and it works great. ) (I play MAX Settings on F.E.A.R.)

ATI 1950Pro is the best AGP video card.

Do the 7800. I'm extremely happy with my decision. D

This card is $200 after a mail-in-rebate and will last you a long time, if you don't play at any huge resolutions
