    Hi
    My graphic card recently (yesterday) started gaving me graphical corruptions and finally after several crashes I couldnt stand it so I had to remove it and had to *ugh* switch to onboard graphics. My card btw, was the the crappy radeon 9600 se. So my question is that which is the best graphics card for AGP.

    My sys specs are=
    P4 3.0GHZ HT
    1.5 GB DDR Ram
    Intel 865 GPF/PBZ Motherboard
    80GB HDD
    DVDRW drive
    CDRW drive

    1) Since it supports only agp what will be the most powerful card for this category?

    2) Does agp go beyond 8x?

    3) How much will a 400GB HDD cost me in new delhi?

    No, AGP is limited to 8x, PCI-E goes upto 16x I guess...

    And most powerful will be either 6800 (is gt there?) or 6600 GT...

    Geforce 7800GS, Radeon X850XT both come in AGP versions. Much better than the 6800.

    You won't find it in India.
    If you have enough money to spend on a 7800GS you might as well upgrade to a new 64-bit proccy and a PCI-Express mobo.
