So that would be a no.

Irrelevant, considering the above. [QUOTE=x-Mandalore-x;3668241]i heard the Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro / AGP / 512MB / is the best for AGP

Yup. The 7800GS is close, but the X1950 Pro the best.

No, it doesn't get any better than that on AGP.

You misunderstood me. I meant "the above" as in what I said - there are no 8800s on AGP, so it's irrelevant whether your system will "run it" because you can't install one anyway. An Athlon XP and 1gb RAM are just not going to cope with the most demanding games out there no matter what graphics card you strap to it. You'll be better off in the long run if you get away from AGP.

To get PCI-E you'll be needing a new motherboard, a new processor and new RAM.

Nvidia has stated they are going to still support AGP with the 8000 series cards

We just dont know for sure which models will be ported to AGP yet.

But seriously, its time to move to PCI express. Ther are too many low cost mobo's and Frye's even bundles mobo and dual core CPU's together at ridiculusly cheap prices. You wind up paying for a CPU with a mobo thrown in.

You may see some lower end 8 series cards available in AGP to support customers using legacy hardware, however I wouldn't hold out for anything more powerful than an 8500, maybe an 8600 at most.
