    Hey guys. Help me out here. I need a decent AGP card for my brother in laws system. If I don't help him out, he's gonna go to Best Buy and spend a fortune on some 6200gs AGP or something. Help me save him from his ignorance. I'm looking to spend no more than $50-$60. I really need this quick guys!!!!

    Edit: needs to be at least 256!

    X1950 Pro FTW!
    What kinda power supply does he have? I have a Sapphire X1950 Pro 512mb AGP with two molex connectors. This was my baby 2 years ago, but now she sits in plastic waiting for a re-birth. She is in impeccable condition and always cleaned out every 2-3 months. Gonna need 2 separate rails with 15 amps each. I could let it go for 60.00 + shipping. Let me know.

    Here is a pic of the card. Like i said, she's very clean and I have very little dust in the house. This was/is the 3rd most powerful AGP card ever made(behind X1950XT AGP/HD3850 AGP).

    NOT going to need 2 separate rails with 15 amps each.... Nice to point out you will need a decent power supply, but he knows very well what kinda power that card takes. ;)

    Sure it does. I'll check with my brother in law. That might be too much card for him and his PSU. He's running a 4 yr old Dell. :laugh:

    Best Cards Available,

    3850 (Fastest Card Available- DX 10 Support)
    1950 Pro (Tried and True Performance- Minor Improvement over the 1900 line)
    7900GS (Best Match for the NV Fans that want close to 1950 Performance)
    7800GS (First on the Block for Fastest AGP but was overthrown by the 1950 Pro)

    Anything Less than those i wouldnt recommend

    Agreed. Looking for any of those cards, for $60 or less. I am a little concerned with the power draw out of his 4 yr old Dell.

    Maybe look for the 2600xt AGP. It doesn't take much power.

    7900gs performs better than the 7900gs in most cases. These are PCI-E results tho.
