Question about ATI RADEON HD 2400 PRO Graphic Card

2 Answers

Horrible Framerate My last video card died and while I'm waiting for a replacement I bought this one. The computer ran my game fine before but with this card I get half the FPS with the settings on Low (they used to be maxed). Is this just a bad video card or is there a fix for it?

    I wasn't looking for a new card, I just wanted to know if there was anything I could do with this one. It doesn't make sense to go and spend even more money on another one when I can make do for another week. Thanks anyway.

  • You will need to upgrade to another card, I would suggest the radeon 3000 and newer for gameing.

    You can get good deals from www.newegg.com if your in the US



    anything else?

  • Pease let me know if there anything else I can help you with, if the problem is solved I would appiciate a green or a blue rating to indicate it has been solved.



    Thank you

Befor buying a new video card must read first


here are some things you should know before buying a video card for gaming.

If you're thinking of replacing your card because you're having problems running a certain game, make sure you have the latest version of the drivers for your current graphics card. You will find the latest drivers for your card available for download from the manufacturer's Web site.

For the purpose of gaming, two developers of 3D graphics card chipsets have come to dominate the market: nVidia and ATI. While there are many video card manufacturers, most of them build their cards around chipsets designed and supported by one of these two companies. Certain games will run a little better on one chipset than another - something you might want to consider before deciding which way to go.

A long time ago the Advanced Graphics Port (AGP) replaced the Peripheral Component Interface (PCI) as the standard way to connect the graphics card to the motherboard. PCI-Express is a new and faster form of PCI, which is replacing AGP as the standard for graphics card slots. PCI-Express offers roughly twice the data transfer rate of 8x AGP. You can't put a PCI-Express card in an AGP slot or vice versa, so your motherboard will have to have PCI-Express if you want to use a PCIE card.

256 MB of memory is, at the time of writing this, about the minimum for a gamer looking for a new card. When it comes to memory, more is always better, although it does raise the price of the card. 128 MB cards are still common, but it's worth looking for 256 MB or even 512 MB of memory if you want to run games at high resolutions.

As the term implies, framerate is an indication of how many frames per second your system can display. The rate not only varies from game to game, it is also affected by the game's settings and the action taking place at any given moment in the game. Framerate is, in some ways, the ultimate test of a video card's speed, so a lot of sites compare cards on this basis. The fastest cards in this regard are usually the most expensive as well.

While you may need the latest version of Microsoft DirectX (DX) software to run a game, this doesn't necessarily mean that your card must be fully compatible with the latest version of DX, you simply won't be able to use certain graphics features. Most new games support cards that have built-in DX 9 features, but will still run on a video card from the DX 8 era. When in doubt, look for the specific chipsets that the game you want to play supports.

This has been a standard feature in game-oriented video cards for quite a few years, but there are still PCs around that don't have it. These are usually systems with Intel graphics integrated into the motherboard, commonly used in budget laptops and desktops designed for office use. If your desktop doesn't have hardware T&L and you have an AGP slot available, adding a newer video card is an option.

Although, as noted earlier, AGP will soon be history, here are some basics if you're working on an older system. There are several different speeds of AGP, but anything other than 8x is rare. Both the slot on the motherboard and the video card will have an AGP rating, but in most cases these ratings do not have to match for the system to work. The system will operate at the speed of the lowest rated component. For example, if your motherboard supports 8x AGP but your video card will only do 4x, your system will operate at 4x.

hope that helps!

Every high framerate game i play causes the graphics to stutter, i have a msi h55 motherboard, i5 quad core processor and 8 gig of ram. could you tell me what might be causing this problem?


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

Use my guide to install the latest drivers for your graphics card. It is entitled How to install Graphics Drivers, Nvidia and AMD Radeon!!!

The section on Nvidia Graphics Cards applies to you.

Your computer components may be overheating, install as many fans as your computer chassis will allow. Use 120mm fans if you can, Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm fans are Excellent.
The cooler you can get your computer to run the better it will perform and the longer it will last.

Download a program called Hardware monitor.
You will then be able to run this program in the background while you are playing your games, then exit the game and check the maximum temperatures.

CPU temps should not be over 65 Deg
Graphics Card Temps should not be over 70 Deg

The H55 computer mainboard is not really a gaming mainboard, it is more of a media setup.
If you keep every-thing cool I suppose you might get away with it.
You may need to give your mainboard an upgrade to P55, Socket 1156
Get a good make I prefer ASUS.

Happy Gaming, For the Win!

Thanking you kindly

9500GT framerates


First install the latest DirectX version, just google dowlnload DirectX... Then install the laest drivers for your card from the Nvidia website. IF that doesn't fix your problem, download a tool called GPU caps viewer, here: http://www.ozone3d.net/gpu_caps_viewer/ Run the program, start playing a game, and as soon as frames drop, minimize the game and check your grapihcs card temperature. If it's over 70 degrees, you will need better cooling for your graphics card. Post back here, and I'll help you find it. If it is cooler than 70, please post back here too, and I'll try to find out what's wrong with the card. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Reboots and crashes


Hi,

A few things you can try:
1. If the sound card Creative SoundBlaster Audigy is an add-on card and your mb has a built-in soundcard, perhaps you have to disable it in the CMOS/BIOS and not only in Device Manager;
2. Verify that there are no IRQ conflicts or sharing between the Creative SoundBlaster Audigy and the GeForce 6200. Alternately, you can try switching the soundcard to another slot;
3. Verify that the mb allocates IRQ 5 for the sound card in the CMOS/BIOS.
4. It might be worth your while also to upgrade your PSU from 250 to something higher (even a 500 probably).

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

ATI RADEON X1650 Pro, AGP Graphic Card 512MB compatibility


Maybe this post is a bit old, but on last deceber I bought an AGP 512MB ATI Radeon X1650 PRO for my Foxconn motherboard and I must say that it's simply awesome!
I can play most games on mid-high settings on reasonable resolutions (most on 1024x768) with good FPS (except with Crysis... but let's face it, did Crytek bought a time machine to warp a 2010 game??).
So, if you already have it, then congratulations, and if you still are thinking on buying it, then what are you waiting for!?
Also, it's AGP x8, if your motherboard support x8, then it should run perfectly fine.

Also, I have a bit of problems trying to run Prey on the X1650...
It always appears an error... it's not of much importance, as I have much better games, but I haven't tried it with high fancy graphics... :P
