Re: Mid Range Graphics Card
This page suggests they aren't readily available yet. I read one
claim that only Leadtek is making them.
The Newegg reviews here suggest that the supply is limited
and they arrive in small batches.
There is a picture here. The card looks to be using an HSI
to convert from AGP on the edge card, to PCI Express for the
GPU being used. Thus any restrictions would be the same
as any other AGP card that uses HSI (like a 6600GT AGP).
This 6600GT is keyed for 1.5V only, so I would expect the
7600GT AGP would be the same. According to this your 5600
is Universal AGP 3.0, which means it can run from either
1.5V I/O or 3.3V I/O, and is a more flexible card. This
is only an issue with older motherboards. My best guess
would be that the 7600GT AGP is "Universal 1.5V AGP 3.0".
The following page may help in the selection process, as you
didn't state what motherboard/chipset you have:
