Prob the X700 or X800 pro's . Do you have pxi -express on your motherboard? If not the agp versions tend to be more expensive.

Dear mgug,

I run a ASUS AX800PRO/TVD 256mb AGP and yes it rocks. I bought it for $550 but make sure it is compatible to your MB.

Also, this card generates serious heat and ASUS does not provide the right cooling with this card.

I recommend the Vantec Fan Card to go along with the video card. You will thank me later.

Let us know,

junkdk :thumbsup:
