Advice for replacing ATI 9800 pro

Posted on 2006-11-25
Last Modified: 2013-11-08

I would like some advice for replacing my ATI 9800 pro AGP card.  It recently begin displaying crazy line and dot movements, so I figured it was busted, as I tried another AGP card – works fine.

I can’t seem to find any decent AGP card (because of PCI-e) out there on the UK market.  Basically I want a card which provides similar or better performance then the 9800 pro.

If your looking for the best agp cards out they would be the gainward 512mb 7800gs(http://www.gainward.net/products/product.php?products_id=29 also only available in the UK) and the 512mb ati x1650 agp , these are the 2 fastest agp cards available and probably the last ones that are ever going to be released.
heres a few
