Reven, I saw your list. Interesting, but not what I was looking for. My older brother is looking for a new card so he can play HL2 and Doom3 [He still hasn't played them!] He has 1.5 gig memory and a 2.8 cpu but he still has an old GeForce 3. He wants:

Lower price is better but he's prepared to pay ~$250.00 Has to have AGP not PCI-e Either ATI or Nvidia type 256 on board memory

Could you help me out so I can advise him? Much thanks.

I think you should go for a X800, Geforce 6600gt or 6800? I dont know a lot though :p

A 6800 should do him well. But the shock might kill him when he sees the diff between a GF3 --> GF6.

unless he plays doom3 allot, for some reason, a 6800 would be good. most of the good games out there are dx9, and i recomend x800 xl's xt's x850 pros. they cost about the same and will serve better than the 6 series. a couple games are comming out on the d3 engine though, Q4, PREY (which will own!!), x800's do great in those games anyway. but other than that.

He plays HL2, so he should get a X800GTO. They are amongst the fastest AGP cards and beat NVidia's arses in this particular game by a large margin.
