7800GS or 7600GS

I'm looking to upgrade my AGP one last time and wondering which AGP card'll run all of the present day games with most of the eye candy turned up. The users guide to my mobo also says I can only use .8 or 1.5 volt cards and not 3.3. Is that something to look at or are 3.3V cards rare

AGP voltages

In reply to: 7800GS or 7600GS

you're in luck the early AGP (ver#1-#2) used 3.3v and you have a motherboard that supports AGP4/8. which is the common one. i'm stuck in the same boat that you are. i have two systems running 3.2 prescotts and i'm not ready to scrap them out just yet. the 7800 looks like the end of the line for agp unless someone steps forward. the x850xt-pe cards are close but still bringing too much money and they are getting hard to find.
