I was wondering what some of the decent AGP video cards that are out there. Did nvidia stop at the 6800 cards for the mac? I noticed the current one from ATI is the x800xt, but for nvidia they only show the 7xxx series on the site.

I prefer nvidia but, I am in the marked for a new card. And it looks like I might have to settle with the x800xt, any opinions? I'm just tearing through this 5200 ultra. I need a newer card that has some oomph.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

Have the X800 XL 256GB in my win machine - is a pretty good card. Have played Far Cry, TR-Legend, handles them and pretty much everthing else I have thrown at it pretty well.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
