Well I have to admit if you want to the best AGP card on the market? The HIS HD 3850 ICEQ3 TurboX AGP is the way to go, here's my card which I recieved last Saturday :)




As you can see they are very different from each other :cool:
The PCB of this HIS is a little narrower and it's Capacitors are all sealed as well, it also seems it's VRM's are from the brand Delta, these come from Zierikzee, Soulth Holland, a short 40KM drive south from my home!

This HIS HD 3850 ICEQ3 TurboX AGP also has a nick name which many also call itas the HD 3870 AGP, this is because it matches HD 3870 PCI-E performance in almost every game out there.

So here it is in my setup from 2004 and it's still rock'n too :)

Dual OpteronDP 248 CG, 2x 2205Mhz, 2x 1MB L2
MSI MS-9130 K8T Master2-FAR VIA K8T800 Chipset
2x 1024MB PC-3200 CL2,5 ECC Reg Kingston Value Ram
HIS Radeon HD 3850 ICEQ3 TurboX AGP 512MB 256Bit GDDR3 Rev.A1 0806 [year 2008, week 06]
3dfx Voodoo5 5500 PCI Macintosh 64MB 128Bit SDR Rev.A1 2900 [week 29, year 2000] + PC Bios 1.18_LCD
ASUS NEC quad ported USB 2.0 PCI card
Auzentech X-Fi Prelude 7.1
1x Western Digital Caviar SE1 250GB Ultra ATA 133 Main HDD
1x Western Digital Caviar RE2 320GB SATA II 300 @ SATA I 150 Slave HDD
Antec True Power P550 EPS12V 550 Watt PSU + External Molex.
Lian Li PC-60 PLuS! MKII

WinXP Pro USA + SP3
ATi Catalyst 9.11 WHQL for HD 3850 ICEQ3 TurboX AGP
SFFT Alpha 41 Modified by "ps47" for 5500 PCI Mac




I use this system to play games like CoD4 MW, Crysis, UT GOTYE 1999, Descent 3, DXX-Rebirth, C&C 3 series, RA3 series and some others, it supports all 3 different API's 3dfx Glide, SGI OpenGL and Microsoft Direct3D.

It also works fine in Vista Business x64 + SP2 without any issues, however I am using WinXP Pro + SP3 on that setup, better driver support for the Voodoo5 and since most games are DX9 anyways or OpenGL XP + SP3 is just fine, though I am quate sure Win7 should work, since it's more like a Win Vista workaround heh.

One of the best solution for AGP Ports, plays much to date games in up to 25-60 FPS.
