    x800 GTO AGP

    I've sort of decided I want to get a x800 GTO AGP 256MB card but I can't find anywhere that has one. Are they just too new or do they not actually exist in UK retail? Same thing with a 6800 AGP 256MB.

    I can get a x850 Pro for quite a bit more money or a 6800 GS for even more again but I don't want to spend that sort of money on a card that will be made defunct when I move over to PCIe. I'm not ready to move to PCIe yet, I want to get some more life out of the box I've got right now by putting a new card into it.

    6600GTs seem abundant and cheap but I don't think they're fast enough. What are my alternatives?

    Has anybody tried importing a graphics card, the US sites seem to have what I want, cheap too but I don't know whether they'll post to a UK address, or whether it'll work out too expensive and I'll be better off spending more on a card in UK retail.

    lowestonweb.com do a 128mb x800 gto agp for £115

    tbh it seems pretty hard to get a high level agp card these days, Im glad I have my x800pro (VIVO so may well unlock to an XT PE as well )
