It also has a 9800 Radeon Pro 128mb AGP Card. Upgrade from 7600gt to x1900gt for 50? I currently have the 6800 Ultra AGP. I'm not 100% sure that my PSU can run it properly, but after reading charts, the 7600gt should draw about the same power as my 6600gt.

So you're talking about another 8 or 9 months until DX10 even comes out, then however long after that before it becomes necessary. [I'm uncertain if DX10 will require Vista, however; Cool, I think i can manage that. :thumbs: Anyone on here selling one :) Pete O'Neil05-05-2007, 11:03 AMGet the 7600GS, anything more will be restricted far too much by the rest Tom's Hardware Around the World Tom's Hardware Around the World Denmark Norway Finland Russia France Turkey Germany UK Italy USA Subscribe to Tom's Hardware Search the site Ok About Tom's Hardware Top lordT Darth Gerbil Posts: 7429 Joined: Fri Nov 25, 2005 2:11 pm Location: Writing Contact: Contact lordT Website Quote #17 Sun Dec 31, 2006 8:48 am AvKn wrote:As for

I'd say either the GeForce 7600GT or 7900GT would be your best bets, depending on how much you're willing to spend. sabecityNov 19, 2006, 3:02 PM cool, thanks, just one more thing.

Since they start around $300, a dual-core CPU is probably too rich for your price range; entry-level single-core S939 CPUs start around $120. All rights reserved. It was a joke when it came out at $170~200 when 7600GTs were hitting $120. Am I happy I did,...I sure am man!!
