Re-adjusted the recommendations and cards to avoid. A few good 'yesterday' cards got bumped to the category of cards to avoid.

Recommended cards are predominantly Nvidia, unless the price drops (X1600 and X1800 series) by ATI filters down to the Singapore retail........

For those who don't mind 2nd hand items, there will be a constant pool of AGP users who upgrade to PCIe and hence selling their high-end cards cheaply.

Looks reasonable. US price is $299 translate to S$ is 490, add shipping and GST, around 550. Expect price to soften a bit after the IT show.

Best deal for the time being. S-video TV out. Don't think there is a review out for this card yet.

PowerColour X1900XT @ $999!! Me just gotten it yesterday at Ban Leong booth. Looking at the image quality, I have to say the extra premium over the 7900GTX is well worth the money (I do have a borrowed 7800GTX with me now and the image quality is clearly better).
