    Hello every1!!!

    I'm still using AGP8X (yeah, I know it's stone age) :$

    For the last 2 years I have had FX5200 and with some tweaking and no OC-ing I've been able to play Quake 4 @ 800x600 Medium, HL2 @ 1024x768 to name a few games + others. But, never been able to enjoy AA/AF and other visual goodies

    So, I've finally decided that the 5200 has to go. Yet, after about a month of research, I cannot decide a clear cut what to buy. I am willing to spend around 200 GBP, but please, have in mind I am from Bulgaria and will be buying the card from local dealers.

    Here is my dilemma:

    XFX 7800 GS XT 256MB
    OR
    Gainward 6800 GS 512MB

    U can check them out here:
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...e_AGP_411.html

    I can buy them for the same price in Bulgaria, but simply can't make my mind up :confused:

    If anyone can suggest which one is the better choice, or even tell me some other models, including ATI, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks a lot!!!

    yeah it does seem the 7800GS is pretty much your only choice for 200, I'd go for one if i were stuck on agp.

    you are talking about the 512MB model, right?
    it is a great graphics card, but my budget cannot afford it

    well, seems like the 7800GS will be my new present!

    many thanks to everyone, who responded to this thread!
