Recently my 4+ years old Sapphire AIW 9700 Pro has shown sign of wear out and I have to replace the card. I don't want to spend too much on this as I plan to rebuilt my whole system 8-12 months later. Nevertheles I still hope that the new card will have at least some improvement over my 9700 Pro. I can do away with the TV viewing so that would not be a problem for my new card. Below is some details of my system and my requirements, I would appreciate any advice and recommendations. PC Spec: CPU - Intel Northwood P4 2.6C Motherboard - Asus P4P800 SE memory - 1 GB DDR Ram PSU - Herolchi (Total output 407W, Peak output 475W, DC output +12V 15A average 18A peak) OS - Windows XP Pro SP2 My gaming habit: Not a frequent gamer but I do like graphics intensive 3D FPS, would hope to have a card that can play Farcry at 1280*1024 at everything max out at a decent frame rate(~30 FPS) (OK, may be I can do without AA and Aniso if that prove to be impossible with my budget) My requirements: Card type - Strictly AGP only. (up to AGP8X) Card - Preferably Nvidia card as I have already tired of the Control centre in the new ATi driver, I still open to Ati suggestion though. Heat - I don't want to spend time and money investing in a 3rd party cooling system just for the card so I would hope that the new card would not dissipate much more heat compare to my AIW 9700Pro. Budget - I stay in Siagapore so I don't think any figure given here would make much sense to most of the readers here. But I have shop around and found some cards and I hope that you can comment on and give suggestion on other cards that should fit in the similar price range. Cards that I have in minds(Price listed is in singapore dollar): 1) Nvidia FX5500 256mb Geforce 4. -- S$59 2) Nvidia FX6200 256mb Geforce 4. -- S$67 3) Nvidia XFX Geforce 6600GT/DDR3 (don't know about the ram size). -- S$99 4) Nvidia NX6600 128mb Geforce 4. -- S$125 5) Nvidia NX7300GT 256mb Geforce 4. -- S$135 Would the cards listed above perform better compare to 9700Pro?
