As the title indicates, I have a 6800XT AGP which has been "collecting dust" in my cupboard for some time now. I got it for a really good price with some other cards, but can't decide what type of machine to fit it in.
It's a Biostar 128MB/64-Bit DDR2 version. This one to be more specific: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?It … N82E16814141075
I haven't tried to benchmark it, but I don't think it would be a huge amount better than a Geforce 6200 AGP, and it's probably even weaker than an AGP 7300GT.
I was thinking of putting it into something like a single core 478 Pentium 4 3.2GHz or maybe even a single core 775. It's probably a little underpowered for a Dual Core AGP machine, and for that I have a Radeon 4650 AGP earmarked anyway.
I also have an Athlon XP 3000+ with a 9800XT in it at present. Would the cut back 6800XT be a better option, or would putting it into one of my 478 P4's be a better choice?
Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance. 😀
