    Lookng to upgrade my graphics card for my system which I have now,so I can play the latest games (hopefuly).It must be a AGP card and put me on until at least xmas before I get a total new PC.
    Ati or Nvida I dont mind...I have lost touch with all the latest gear..

    Cheers

    7900GS are pretty cheap these days, 7950GT may be or X1950 pro if you like Ati :p

    The X1950PRO is the fastest AGP car out there.

    It has 36 Pixel pipelines, whereas the 7900GS only has 20.

    Pretty much everything else is faster on it too, such as more Vertex pipelines.

    It IS the fastest, but I do hate the ATI drivers in general.

    I think the X1950XT 256MB GDDR3 AGP is better than the X1950Pro, so that would probably be the best AGP card you can get. The X1950Pro looks to me to be the best value for money.

    For NVIDIA, i think the best AGP card is the 7950GT which is about the same price as the X1950XT, although i am unsure which card is better, it's probably the X1950XT. I didn't know you could get the 7900GS for AGP, if you can and it's around the same price as the PCI-e version, then it should be reasonably good value for money, however the X1950Pro is a better card as mentioned before and should cost the same, if not less.

    X1950XT is the best, X1950Pro is the best value.

    One last thing, it may be possible that ATi partners will release a 2000 series AGP card, but from what i have read this will probably be something from the 2600 series, so it won't be a great card.
