Thread: Ordered New 3850 AGP

    Ordered New 3850 AGP

    Well my 9700 pro finally died on my PC. I think trying Call of Duty4 attempt just fried it. :lol: So I went ahead and took the plunge and went for the new 3850AGP. I figure this will be the last of the AGP's, if not, it will definately be the last for me. I figure this will get the damn kids of my computer trying to play all the cool games. At least long enough for me to save up and get them a system of thier own built.

    I'm kinda excited to get it and see what it can do and how it compares to whats out there and how bad my system limits it. I guess that makes me a geek for wanting to bench something but so be it.

    Just to give you an idea of what I put it in here are the specs:

    Xp3200+ Thermalright cooler with 80mm alum fan.
    MSN K7N2 Delta Mobo.
    1GB Crucial XMS ram
    160gb WD hardrive.
    onboard sound.

    I'll post up some benchies after I get it and let you know what it can do.

    Sapphire...click the linky in my post above or...below

    apparently there are several card manufactures coming out with this same reference design just with different coolers. Sapphire is just the first to put it on the street. Here are some links in pics I got from another forum.

    This is the one I would love to have purchased. I figure I'll just get the cooler later. I need a card now as my PC is out of it.

    Crud! ... a 3850 AGP ... and at a good price too ...

    ... now I have a reason not to upgrade my PC to PCI Express

    decisions, decisions

    Well, To be honest if this were MY machine I would probably upgrade. Getting a much better card than this would cost me about the same in PCI-e. Plus my whole machine would be faster as well. But since my kids aren't perfomance snobs like I am and could care less if all the eye candy is on or not I'll let them sit on this system for a while.
