  1. Good news for folks with old PC and motherboards. NVIDIA will be releasing its most powerful graphics card, 7800 on the agp slot :) . Don’t know how powerful it might be but hey it’s the 7 series and has got to better than the 6 series. Found out on this site, so don’t actually know if it’s true. Site read that it might release on February the 2nd. Here’s the link to prove that I am not bluffing :evil: -

    I still don't know why they're refusing to have a 7800GT in AGP. Using a bridge and making the card less than a 7800GT is dumb. Unless it's considerably faster than a 6800GT, I'll wait for the next gen cards.

    huh?

    What about us fixed income guys that can't afford a new mobo every time a "new" card or interface shows up? :confused:

    This guy was able to overclock his BFG 7800 GS stock to " 480/1380, speeds ". Thats just amazing as he actually is faster on his stock card than the "EVGA Nvidia 7800 GS OC Overclocked" which is said to be the fastest 7800 available.

    So then there would be no need of buying the EVGA (and pay more) as we can get better results ourselves ??? (Confused, really confused)
    Please do comment. Thanx.

    Just because one guy gets a geat OC on his video cad does not mean every one will get the same OC.
    Man I can not even get my 7800gs to boot cause my 480 watt PSU is not poweful enough. That does not mean every one w/ a 480 watt PSU will not be able to boot. It just means my PSU is not very good.

    Not really, athena. The requirement is different. You should have one available line for just your 7800GS. And leave other lines for your CD/DVD/HDD and dont plug the line that run to CD/DVD/HDD and to 7800GS, your VC wont work, your VC will work ok if you give them just one line and have it not connect in other than VC

    I wonder y they limit the pixel pipelines in 7800 GS to 16, they should have atleast make it 20, i guess. 6800 ultra also had 16 pipelines. However, HDR is a good feature to enjoy on AGP.
