Be sure before you buy.

Edit: Hey lurkswithin get down with yo bad self. I might look into getting one of those for my p3.

It says that the AGP aperture size is 64MB. Does that mean I'm limited to getting an 64MB video card?

Note**** there is NO MORE support from INTEL on that board so what you are seeing is for reference only.
Wait, I'm not sure I entirely understand that link. An AGP 2x/4x card with 1.5 Volt slot will work, but an AGP 2x card with 1.5 Volt slot will not?

Or is that supposed to be the card WILL work with an AGP 2x/4x card with 1.5 Volt slot, but NOT with an AGP 2x/4x card with 3.3 Volt slot?


Thanks for all the patience and help.

Default Re: New Video Card

I've been doing some more research, but I was wondering if you guys could tell me if this video card would work for me.

It's the ATI Radeon 9550 256 mb card. What I don't understand is that the card is listed as having 4x/8x AGP speeds. My motherboard is 1/2/4x. Would this mean that the card would run on my computer, but only at the 4x speed? What implications would this have?

Also, the card is listed as needing a 'Universal AGP 3.0 bus configuration (4X/8X)'. My computer has AGP 2.0, I think. Does this mean it can't run on my computer?

Thanks for your help.
