  1. I Have been wanting to upgrade my Radeon x800 for some time now.
    I was just wondering if anybody had suggestions in regards to which new AGP Card I should get.

    I Need a Card that will run 'BIA: Hell's Highway', 'Alliance: The Silent War' and other games of the sort; (Requireing Pixel-shader 3.0).

    My Budget lies around $150AU.
    The Radeon HD2600 seems to be a good choice, but I want to be sure of it
    before I buy anything.

    My System Specs are shown Below.

    Any help is appreciated.
    Cheers.

    Try getting a 3830 or even 3850 if your budget allows it.

    Thanks Didou, but...
    I've had a look at the 3850, and although it is a superb card, it is out of my price range. As for the 3830; I couldn't find any stock on Australian sites. :(

    Basically, the Radeon 2600 is looking alright to me, but I need some second opinions.

    Can anyone tell me if the 2600 will run games like Hell's Highway and R6: Vegas 2 smoothly? (Taking into account my crappy system specs)
