7900 GTX (PCI-E)
7900 GT (PCI-E)
7800 GTX 512 (PCI-E)
7800 GTX (PCI-E)
7800 GT (PCI-E)
7800 GS (PCI-E) AGP only
7600 GT (PCI-E) should perform better than the above
7300 GS (PCI-E)Performs on a lower level than the 6600s. comparable to 6200 series
7300 LE (PCI-E)same as above
Of the two links, both may be a problem for my MB... physically too long. I couldn't even install a Ti4600, endup with a Ti4200.
I am really looking for a VIVO, found some. Will keep looking...
I ordered that same card from newegg awhile back when I still had an AGP system and got Sapphire's shorter blue PCB model instead of the bigger red one pictured so you never know. I've owned the AOpen 6600GT 128MB AGP card as well and compared to the X800GTO, it's a no contest. Your probably best off with the X800GTO series but if it has to come down to the 6600GT or the X1600PRO, then have a look below....
I'm not here to tell you which card to get but just to provide some quick facts ;
6600GT AGP vs X1600PRO AGP
GDDR3 (6600GT) vs GDDR2 (X1600PRO)
8 PixelPipelines (6600GT) vs 12 PixelPipelines (X1600PRO)
500MHZ Core (6600GT) vs 500MHZ Core (X1600PRO)
900-1000MHZ Memory (6600GT) vs 800-900MHZ Memory (X1600PRO)
128bit Memory (6600GT) vs 128bit Memory (X1600PRO)
HDTV/ViVO : YES/NO (6600GT) vs YES/NO (X1600PRO)
Fact is ; Both cards are simular in performance and price and you really cant go wrong with either one! Both can be had for well under $200 US as well. The only real choice to be had with these cards is whether you want a 128MB memory model or a 256MB or higher AGP model. I think only the X1600PRO series can be had in a 512MB memory model in AGP. Also, either 128MB model can be had for the same price while the 256MB model for the 6600GT is a bit higher compared to the X1600PRO
MSI NX6600 is not a GT... refurbished... $98, but I don't want to risk not getting the cables...
Both aren't even VIVO...
My Ti4200 is still displaying well, so it gives me time to browse. Maybe I should start watching the Trading Post thread.
I am still swinging b/f between the GF6*00 and X8*0XT. I am still looking for VIVO, a lot video cards do not have those. I know ATi "AnW" is a VIVO, but I am not looking into video editing with the video card (I have a PCI Pinnacle Studio for that). I just want to capture a live video with a second 14" monitor, while I am working on the main monitor. I should be looking into a low-end VIVO since I am not even a gamer (I don't need to play fast with Yahoo! Chess, LOL). Just thought to get at least (hardware) DX9, etc... I play around with newegg advanced search.
