    I believe the 6800GS is the last AGP card

    Ok, maybe, but if I had a AGP board, I would not be interested in a 7600 because it's not really a way forward... U can get reasonably fast agp cards still, but I suggest to switch to Pci-e anyway, coz if u already have a decent agp card (6800gs/gt/ultra) there is no way to get a better one for your slot!!!

    Well, said card wouldn't be for anyone with 6800gs/gt/ultra anyway now would it? It would be for us poor slops that are still running FX series and lowend 6xxx series.

    I love you guys with your highend cards thinking everyone should be as fortunate as you.

    False, I asked this same question in a thread a few weeks ago. Not even the fastest video cards are using up all of the bandwidth AGP 8x can supply yet. I think the agreement was that they switched over to PCI-E now because in the future AGP will be obsolete. Its not that video cards are faster then what AGP 8x can supply, not yet at least.

    Yep a 7600 AGP might be a viable upgrade for me. If it performs at least as good as 6800GS.

    Ah. Yet another mindless slave to the marketing hype ;)

    Yes, PCI-E is the new standard... But AGP hasn't been maxed out at all.

    Also, SLi is a waste right now because there are a lot of problems with the technology and the fact Nvidia is also peverting it into another false-hype marketing ploy to get people to upgrade unecessarily.

    Why?

    The original concept of SLi was to have two low-to-mid range cards, I.E. 6600s, perform = to one 6800 GT/Ultra. Now, of course, Nvidia is telling people they aren't "hip or cool" unless they have two, 7800 GTX's running in SLi which completely defeats the purpose of SLi to begin with and that is budget gaming/processing power.

    Also, the most obvious problem is a lot of games aren't coded to properly work with SLi and even if they are, you still don't see a huge increase in FPS that a lot of SLi users thought they would see. It's just pure marketing BS in a lot of instances.

    Whatever, PCI is older then AGP but someone made a 6xxx series PCI card. Why, because the market is there. There will be 7xxx series AGP cards even if just for the low and mid end.

    So, the answer is yes because 70% of the market is still using AGP.

    Um, yeah ok, how do you know this, where did you find out? Im still pretty sure that there will never be an AGP GeForce 7 as nvidia clearly stated last year that the GeForce 6 series was their last GPU release on the AGP platform.

    Really?? Got a link to that statement from Nvidia??

    This is from the FAQs on Nvidia's own website.

    While I wouldn't expect a 7800 AGP a low to mid end 7xxx series card dosn't look to be out of the question.

    I dont have a link, but if I remember correctly it may have been in a press release on Nvidia's site or something, or in the FAQ's, but then again nvidia may've changed since last year since there's still a large demand for AGP. but now there is slowly becoming a demand for both platforms, but still I dont see a future for AGP.

    i thought both had scrapped future agp cards as they reached the limit of agp transfer rates and agp would just slow down a 7800gtx etc
