I want to get a new vid card. If anyone has an old one they want to sell me, i would be very willing to take it. Must be an AGP card, and i have a 300 watt power supply. If anyone has an old one or sees any great deal, please let me know. Thanks.

I dont have it but i want to get a evGa 7600gt its around 100-150$ its more xpensive at retail stores than online (like always) its a mid range card.


Oh and how did you find out how much wattage u got i dont know how to find mine.



and he could have a pci express slot to those cards waaay better

chances are that if he has an agp he doesn't have pci-e

as far as the best deals look on newegg for a x1650 for about $90

Oh and how did you find out how much wattage u got i dont know how to find mine.I took the cover off the tower and it said right on the side of the power supply.

I am pretty sure that it is 4x/8x.

Edit: Would an X800 Pro be good for running BF2? Found one on ebay.

yes but for the best deal I would just go to newegg for the ability to return if the card is dead or messed up

you may not know what you are getting from ebay

btw $90

Thanks BBCheese. That really helps. One question though. Would a 300W Power supply be enough for it?

depends on what make it is. A cheap *** one won't help ya, while a thermaltake or antec can do magic with just 300 watts
