    6800gt on agp clocked happily to ultra. Not sure if that really makes any difference! Won't be upgrading for a while as I only play aoe 3 and dow.
    Not around too often!

    ATI 9500@9700pro, still plays my games ok.
    I'll only change it when I can afford to go to pci-e.

    nVidia 64MB GF4 4200 (because my ATI 128MB 9800 Pro died). Possibly going to get a new card soon (X800 GTO2 / GTO16 or 6800GS). Obviously need to go PCI-E first though

    I'm still hanging onto my 9800 Pro and socket A Athlon 3200 - still serves me nicely (well just about) on the latest games ^_^

    When I say nicely, its anything but a super low res and super low graphics options - with my budget I can't justify buying a graphics card once every year to keep AA on!

    Sapphire X800 GTO² flashed and clocked to X850XT. Could probably go further but I dunno how much of a gain I'd get from pushing it to XT PE and beyond... plus I'm still on the stock cooler.

    What did you have your GTO² at 'cause I've been wondering how much of an improvement a 7800GT(X) would be.

    ScanFX (XFX) 7800GT. Replaced a 6800GT which went "poof". Had to get new mobo and CPU at the same time (card was AGP and CPU was S754), so I was not happy .

    scored 6600 in 05 with 535-589, there was more in the card in both core and mem, core could hit 540/2 mem could hit 609/11(stock cooler/no volt mods), heat was not a problem, the card needed more volts, it would have went further, great card,



    My 7800GT is a great clocker scored 8500 in 05 504-1218, the core has been up to 516 mem has hit 1260, I have not worked out both max yet, but from the games I play pro evo 5 their was IQ improvement, higher fps with more tunred on in nfs-mw, I will say cod2 seemed better on the gto2, not higher fps, it seemed just a bit smoother on the gto2, but for the money my pov was a bargain.

    1st edition Connect3D X800GTO, unlocked to 16pp and clocked to 570/570 with a VF700-CU. Scored 7005 in 05, which outscored my old GTO2 by 400 for &#163;40 less (&#163;114) Awesome card, although undeservedly in the shadow of the GTO2 during the big unlocking orgy of 2005. I don't think the new C3D X800GTO's unlock, which is a big shame.

    I got the Sapphire X1900XTX as a replacement for my X800Pro flashed to XT, tbh I don't think it was worth the money. I can't see whats sooo good about it except its rediculously high 3dmark scores, ingame FPS I am beaten by an X1800XL which is pathetic. It's not my hardware or drivers because all has been tested and switched around, I'm not too bothered because I can keep a hold of it until they release the R600 or G80. I think I may get the nvidia variety though tbh...
    3dmark05 score: 11309 @ 689/789
    3dmark06 score: 5907 @ 689/789
    FEAR maximum game settings (not sure of resolution), soft shadows on: Average FPS = 56

    Currently running a ATI X1600 pro, the agp version of this card and it's certainly a step up from an FX5200.

    3D mark 2001:

    FX5200 - 3496

    X1600 - 14576

    so you can see it's a big difference

    Hiya,

    I use a Radeon 9550. The main reason being that I'm on a budget, and as my ENTIRE system (minus monitor) set me back &#163;250 in total (Sempron based, self build), there's no way I could justify the same amount on just the viseo card. Would not be any point either as the rest of the system would bottle-neck it!

    Cheers!

    Depends really, a Sempron 754 is really just as good as their A64 counterparts.. Clock it up and you'll notice that it really doesnt make that much difference.

    But judging that its AGP limits your upgradability as well, but a good 6800GS should suit that Sempron-y well...
    Me want Ultrabook
