7800gs, i heard that was scrapped and it is not coming out for AGP. If that info was wrong, then will definately wait for a 7800gs, becauase although the improvement to a 6800gs from a 6600gt is good, i want something that I can have and not worry about for at least a year.

Everyone says 'may launch soon'... If 6800gs is coming out, it is very likely that a 7800gs will be available as well, don't ya think? For now, it iss more rumor rather than a fact, we have to wait

Heres an article on the 7800GS but no AGP in sight

http://www.ngohq.com/home.php?page=a...read&arc_id=58

hers another link that says the 7800GS will be AGP and PCI-E

http://www.cooltechzone.com/index.ph...k=view&id=2058

well not sure if its true but you think what you want to. i think the 7800GS will be both AGP and PCI-E but will probably be the last AGP chipset ever designed

AGP chipset ever designed! Jeez... So harsh man :'(

I don't think that way, at first I thought nVidia screwed everyone that had AGP in the *** but now...6800gs and 7800gs are coming out. There's still many people out there with AGP, so hopefully nVidia will be 'good' with the AGP folks (like me)

Yah...Same here, look at my system, I prob won't be able to run some next-gen at max (I know I won't) but I am also in no hurry to change to PCIX until agp series are dead. Like you said, looking forward to the 7800gs
