Default new agp card?

okay edit-
my brother only has 300 to spend on a new agp card
either this
http://www.gainward.net/products/pro...products_id=29
with 20 pipelines and 285 american dollars....

or this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130274
with 16 pipelines and 280 american USD yuh.

which one is better and more reliable??

edit- im getting a new s939 computer soon so i gave him my AGP rig, it has a gainward 6800 128 mb and really likes it.....it runs fear on high settings, but he wants a new card so.

Hmmmm.... Im not great on video cards but i think that the gainward one looks slightly better.Do you not have any PCI-E slots on youre mobo as AGP's are being phased out at the moment , so if you want to upgrade in the furter i recomend getting a mobo with pci-e slots

lol i know dude....im getting a pci-e computer this summer - here is the link to the one im getting- http://techist.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=108999

but i gave my old AGP rig to my brother, and he doesnt need to upgrade really, his 6800 plays everything fine but he has money and wants a new card......
so any comments on which one....im leaning toward the gainward but need to buy here in the US.

Go with the Gainward card, it uses the full 7800 core instead of the tuned down GS version.

Do you think you can find the gainward card anywhere else ? ebay.com , geeks.com (they do some alternatives) I dunno or look at a different card altogether

You should sell that 6800 after you get the 7800GS to get some more money.

Hmmm... depending on the price, I may be interested in buying the card when you sell it .
