The 7800GTX by EVGA...
That monster also takes up a lot of damn space!

That whole entire graphics card is encased with this riduculous aluminium casing. You would think it would just have the fan on there like the other normal 7800GTX cards. That big thing traps a lot of heat in there, don't you think?

Actually, that whole thing is the heatsink. If you took it apart, it the whole thing would have heatsink radiator fins running through it.

ok I cant decide what card to get:
-eVGA GeForce 6800 GT


Sapphire Radeon x850 XT PE
-

eVGA GeForce 7800GT
-

I cant decide if to just buy a decent agp card(6800 GT)and save money, buy a really good agp card(x850 xt pe), or buy the 7800GT. If I buy the 7800GT then I would have to buy a processor. The motherboard is free but the processor would be more.

The X850 XT PE is the most powerful AGP card in the market while the 7800 GT is the second most powerful PCI-E card in the market. The best, of course, is the 7800 GTX.

AGP is more trustworthy, but PCI-E is way better performance wise.
