Default Ati Radeon Xpress 200?

I have a friend who got this video card when he purchesed his new computer. But this is not one that i'm familiar with. Is this a good card? How much would this cost? Is it PCI AGP or PCI-E Whats it's comparitive to a Geforce?

no, it's not a video card. It's a chipset

Joe, you're correct and incorrect. It's a chipset but it has onboard video as well :P

All in all, it's horrible video. I mean it's ok, but definetly not for gamming.

Oh yeah, and it's a PCI-Express chipset. It should have a PCI Express slot in there.

Onboard video, utterly useless for most forms of gaming. It can't even manage to stay above 60fps in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. Even my old GeForce2MX can do that.

He paid $1100 for:

160 GB HD
1G ram
15" Flat panel monitor
P4 2.9 w/ HT
and the Xpress 200 for his GPU.


I laughed.
