heh, they've become very cheap now, but no, sorry, i don't (you COULD try ebay)

also, i don't think a 6800gt would help you very much because your pc133 ram and 800mhz is limiting your performance

also, your power supply probably can't support a 6800gt

finally, are you sure that 6800gt is agp? you can only support AGP, not pci-xpress

You would think that he would get stuff like that cheaper since they make all of that stuff in his region

i'm not planning on getting 1 now, especially not with my current computer. i wanna get it 4 my new computer, which is obviously much better than this 1. well, u won't get it cheaper here. coz in d US there r more (much much more) people who wanna buy this stuff compared to s'pore, so the prices there r cheaper there than over here. yes, that is agp btw. i'll put my new computer's specs on my sig soon.
