Replacing a Radeon 9800 Pro AGP graphic card

I have a 2003 Evesham Axis 3000 system. Graphics card is an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro AGP 128mb which has just packed up (out of warranty of course). Should I replace it with the same card (can be had on ebay for £30 to £40 second hand) or should I go for something more modern eg Sapphire Radeon X1650 Pro AGP 256mb.(£53 from eBuyer). I am worried about the Axis PC's PSU capacity (320w I believe?) to handle the more up to date and more powerful graphics cards. Can anyone confirm the capacity of the Axis' PSU (I can't tell just by opening the case and am reluctant to disassemble the PSU). Also I have heard that the Radeon X1650 can get very hot - not sure my Axis case is that well ventilated. If so, what other cards could I consider? Grateful for any advice. Gogs

Hi, ist answer is good advice but I reccomend caution buying secondhand graphics cards on Ebay, a lot of these are from gamers who have upgraded and may well have over clocked their old card. This could cause the card to fail when you try to use it. Check the feed back on the seller and the return policy before you buy. Goodluck mistyman

Axis 3000 is listed as 360w and this should just do as the card requires 350w. As you are going to Ebuyer anyway why not get a new PSU, they have a 450 watt PSU with a large fan for £16. Make sure you are getting the AGP version and not the PCI-E version of the card. I find eBuyer are usually open to replacing items and you could ask their tech support first.

How to covert to Mac edition (ATI Radeon 9800 Pro)

Even if you do this, I would not guarantee it will work. Before you destroy it and void the warranty, you could probably return it or sell it on eBay. It's still a decent card for a AGP variety.

Swap 9800 Pro for 9700 Pro

You must uninstall the current driver and reinstall the driver for the 9800 Pro first:
Power supply recommended is 300watt for each, so that is not a factor. It would have to be a driver conflict.
