    I think it is plugged into a pci slot though not as computer savvy as some. There is nothing remotely the same as the power for the cd drive. I am assuming that my motherboard does not support this card?

    By the way my old card was a Radeon 9550

    the radeon x1650 is a native pci express card which is compatable with AGP when a bridge chip is used.....is the graphics card inserted into a pci express slot on the motherboard ?

    have a look on the graphics card itself and look for a power connector the same as the one on you cdrom drive.

Hello,

Depending on what version of the x1650 you have, there is a 4 pin power connector either at the top right corner, or next to where the fan is plugged in. If your power supply doesn't provide the connector you will have to buy a 4 pin molex to 4 pin mini adapter.

You could try this link, but with all Beta software nothing is guaranteed until the approved verisons are released.

Not put down your video card though x1650 is not a "screamer" in todays standards, I'm running a 3870OC myself because it was cheaper than to buy the latest and greatest. I believe you are limited by your motherboard only having AGP? Take a look at this link:

You would be able to retain the already installed drivers. It all depends on your budget. On another note try lowering your colors and changing the monitors frequency. I hope this helps.

ATI x1650 Pro Stops!?


For this card they recomment at leat a power supply rating of 450 watts. If you have lower than this then I would suggest upgrading the power supply. A 550 watt psu is reasonably priced and should give you plenty of power for future use. Hope this helps.

Screen going blank for a second or two while video freezes then jumps.


If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again
Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted
had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it

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

X1650 xt agp installation problem


check and see if your pc has the recommended power requirements, a lot of the generic power supply's can't support anywhere near the posted wattage. A good power supply is very heavy with big heat sinks. Also check and make sure that the graphics card does not require any extra power connectors. A lot of the newer card require you to either plug in a pci-e power connector, molex plug, or floppy drive power cable.
