    Happened ages ago before you fought with apk...

    IMHO its pretty useless though. Since there is an AGP X1950XT anyway... Holy cow check out the price.

    Wow, I can't believe I missed that. Yeah it is pretty useless and overpriced, but I could have sworn nVidia said the 7800GS was going to be the last AGP card from them. Oh well.

    Dont worry, you just a month off.

    Check out the x1950XT oced to an XTX for agp....

    nope, 7600GT agp came a tad later and is much better than the 7800gs...but now it is (of course) the 79xx...

    hey

    no guys ill think yull find thats a real 7950 core on there xfx ar the only ones who make it rite now

    gainward had one but its a 7900gt on a agp card 512mb i wanted that one but couldent find one

    an as for a 7600 beating a 7800gs ill have to see that being as i have a [bfg 7800gs] an i if i oc it a lil i get the same marks as a 7800gt [pci-e] i benched at work big winfast one

    i allso got to bench a ati x1600 agp 512mb wasent bad

    bout the same marks as a 6600gt ddr3 256mb [iv never liked ati.s drivers or software set up thow]
    thow the cards seam nice if they dont burn up ran ritardidly hot but stable bout 85-90c load
    on the core [not my comp i was just told to reinstall windows]

    allso the core isint made for agp y do u think they have the transfer chip just above the agp on the card

    so in theary if they made the rite transfer chip we could have a 8600 agp some time

    ther will be a bottel neck a bit im shure but yould get all the pritty [thow its funny how close my 7800gs agp is to a 7800gt pci-e both 256mb ddr3]
