Elite Bastards takes a look at the Galaxy GeForce 7600 GS AGP video card
Let's be honest for a second here, if you're running some of the last Socket 478-based Pentium 4s or a Socket 939 Athlon64 CPU on an nForce 3 Ultra or the like, with a healthy amount of memory, then there's very little tangible need for the overall system upgrade. Moving such a system to PCI Express could quite conceivably mean replacing the motherboard, memory and CPU, leaving you out of pocket when it comes to buying the GPU you craved in the first place.Galaxy GeForce 7600 GS AGP Review
Although this is liable to be the last generation of graphics hardware that gets the AGP treatment, thankfully users of the aforementioned systems are starting to find themselves with a growing numbers of options when it comes to upgrading their graphics subsystem, thanks almost exclusively to NVIDIA's willingness to ship parts utilising this older interface. First came the higher-end GeForce 7800 GS, which has now been bolstered by partners beginning to ship GeForce 7600-based parts in an AGP flavour.
It is one of these parts that we will be looking at today, courtesy of those good, good people at Galaxy. So, under the microscope we go with their GeForce 7600 GS AGP, to see if it can make for a worthwhile upgrade for those hungry hordes of AGP pixel whores.
