Question about Graphics BV200 BizView 128MB (128 MB) PCI Graphic Card

Need a new slim,low power gfx card

I have a friend who is looking for a new gfx card for gaming. Having researched his system I have found out his options are VERY limited. He has a PCI-e x16 2.0 port BUT the major downside in his system is that the PSU is 250 watts (ouch!). He only has 30W to work with and he has no power cables left to connect to the card, not many need them @ 30W range anyway. Also his computer is slimline =/. So, the best I can find fo him is the ATI HD 4550 which is very cheap,Low profile (if you can take out the VGA port) and ony uses 25W.

So I was wondering if anyone else out there knows a better gfx card to fit a system like that since he is willing to go up to $200

I myself am a heavy gamer, but i dont really know much about lower end gfx cards since i wouldnt touch them with a barge pole (:P)

Thanks for your help in advance :)

Hello,

I would advise your friend to ugrade that PSU first. 450-500w at least. Depending upon your friends preference, both ATI and Nvidia offer decent cards for under 100 bucks. For the $200.00 he could upgrade both. Check out www.newegg.com. Thats where I buy all my stuff.

Good Luck!

I have 2 ati 4890 gfx cards and they have 2 6-pin power connectors on them. do i hook up 2 6-pins to them or 1 6+2pin to each?


Either way for as long as you can supply the 12v power to both gfx cards. You will not be able to use your gfx card if it isn't powered.

Card not getting detected


does this card have another power source (6 or 8 pin on top of the card) that has not been connected? Also be sure that it is fully seated in the slot. if it has 2 DVI or VGA ports make sure to use the one closest to the rear of the pc.

Other than that If you removed it you maybe have shorted something, ESD (eclectic static discharge) may have shorted out a circuit or transistor on the card.

Computer restarts on game start


Remove all traces of ATI drivers from add/remove programs and reboot before trying to install the newest Catalyst Control Center. The latest - 9.4 - does NOT have your card listed (they list the PCIe version, not AGP).

Recently ATI removed support for many of their "legacy" cards. 9.3 may be of more use to you.

Hi, you most certainly have a problem with the card. I advise you to return it to the vendor ASAP for a warranty claim.
