    I want to buy a midrange AGP video card to keep my system going for
    another 6 months before building a new machine. I'd like to get a card
    that is $150 or under. Two good choices that I've found locally are
    BFGTech cards. Specifically a GeForce 7600 GS OC with 512MB of RAM and
    a GeForce 6800 GS OC with 256MB of RAM. From what I've gathered online
    both seem similar in performance but I haven't managed to find any
    direct comparisons of their performance and features. All things being
    equal I would assume the 7600 would be better because it uses a newer
    chip with newer feature support. Does anyone have experience with
    these and can tell if one is faster than the other? Or does anyone
    have any other sub-$150 AGP video cards to recommend?

    If you are truly building a new machine in six months or so I don;t know
    how much it matters which one you get. I have just bought a Palit
    Geforce 6800GS AGP which happily OCed to 520/1320. I also got the 256MB
    card as I think 512mb in a mid range card is overkill.
