    But you can still get a 8500GT with 512 RAM for about $70. I think that is alot better then a 6600GT. In the first place where the hell did you manage to find a 6600GT??!!! that is like older then an old fart like me hehehehheeh

    Hey I am still using my 8600GT and I am happy with it. It still looks good and smoother then I play Gears Of War or even quite good in Crysis. And this on my wide screen LCD.

    Brudder.... sorry to bring more bad news.

    Your Motherboard is old. It is still using AGP. You have no PCI Express slot so majority of the boards are beyond your reach. You have to look at only ACP graphice board which means....very sad gamming speed, slower frame rate or lower resolution.

    I saw one : PowerColor HD3850 512M D3 HDMI AGP........... $199

    Bro...make sure anything you want to buy you check them all out to make sure they are compatible if not you bring all home to fix up and then you notice parts don't fit and some of this shops will not allow refund or exchange

    Ya but if your motherboard don't have PCI express ...which yours you mentioned don't have...then you buy this board also no use. It will not fit inside your motherboard. heheh

    YOu have to look only at AGP slot type grpahic card and to be honest..as that market is not big since most are using PCI express slot....they have kept the price high for all those looking to get another AGP slot type graphic cards.

    AGP= Old tech PCI Express=NEW tech.

    Also the reason why they give up on AGP is because it has reached it highest limit to allow faster data movement. So to get more data thru to improve generating visual and frame rate..etc ...PCI Express is now the new one. In fact there is already a new 2nd generation PCI Express for top end board.

    In any case if your budget is tight..why are you looking at the sport car high price graphic card? heheh It will not be good also. It is not balance with the rest of your other computer parts. To run a fast graphic card you also still have to have a pretty fat CPU. RAm and NEWER MOTHERBOARD to support it.

    ah!!...Now I know what you talking about. Radeon series... no wonder. But it does not have "GT" lah heheh.. I also have one like that but mine is the Radeon 9550 from Gigabyte. I still have it. It is not bad in fact better then yours but it is still slow compare to what is available and it is one I only run on lower resolution as to high the frame rate drop. I usually play game at 800 x 600 at 24bit. With my new card I am playing at 1680 x 1050 at 32 bit colours heheh...

    JUst like any old technology...they slower but surely stop production of it and this is not just because less people buy them. The REAL FACT is they are too slow to handle all the higher frame rate. data transfer....etc. So it is a dying tech that support also no use. So what you can find in the market that is still AGP...well they are all too damn slow for gamming. But are fine for normal office work and even photo editing to a great extend. Sorry but that is just the way it goes.
