Thread: Do people still buy AGP cards?

  1. #1

    Default Do people still buy AGP cards?

    I was browsing Take2, going through their specials and saw some AGP cards there.

    So, I started wondering if people still buy them?
    Especially considering everyone (afaik) buys PCI-E and the latest motherboards don't feature AGP slots anymore.

    I, for one, don't buy it.

    So... do you?
    What the mind can conceive, it can achieve.

    A lot of people out there still have old motherboards with AGP, but no, I don't personally.
    Wait... what?

    The last AGP card I used was a XFX Geforce 6600GT 128mb. It was quite decent for its time.

    I get Walk-in clients frequently requesting AGP cards for their P4 (socket 478) machines.

    The S3 trio and Riva TnT's were awesome ... I chucked an old Geforce 2 into one of the work's old pc's when it's card packed up. AGP's just keep going on!

    I have an old geforce 6200 fx that broke out of warranty. I was a student away from home and too poor to afford anything (no onboard either ) .. so I climbed into the card with my soldering iron and spare components from my electronics projects. Amazingly enough I fixed it! ... it's in a bud's pc now and 5 years later it's still working.

    My girlfriend is using an old machine of mine that still has AGP. I think it's got a ATI Radeon 9200 SE. Eh maybe I should get a newer card for her. Unfortunately I can't afford a new pc for her.

    I think it's got a 4x AGP slot. Is that correct? Crikey I can't remember those things. I'll have to go read up on it.
