Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card

ATI RADEON X1650 Pro, AGP Graphic Card 512MB compatibility

I currently have a Geoforce 5700FX LE 256MB gfx card running on my motherboard and I think I will be needing to update it soon. My question is will the Asus P4SDR-VM motherboard support either a Hihgtech ATI X1650 Pro AGP 512MB IceQ 128-bit DDR2 card (card is 8x/4x backwards compatible).


I have been informed that it might run on my motherboard and then again they may not run at all. Is there anyway to test it, before purchasing either?

    No luck with the Asus site, but managed to get someone from sales on their 1300 number to ask some guys in the motherboard development side of things.

    And he will email or phone me back with the information about compatibility, and some other stores that may be able to help me out.

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

I don't think there is actually a way to test it before hand because in order to test the card, you would have to install it.  I do think your motherboard would support the card, however if I was you I would go to the Asus website and see what video cards they recommend for your motherboard before buying one.

Looking to upgrade my graphic card one last time. Currently running a RADEON X850 AGP 8x. Dell XPS, 3 GHz Pent4 w/875P chipset.(800MHz Bus Clock, 400MHz DDR, Hyper-threaded (2)-- I would like the highest...

I wouldnt know whether you just like ATI Graphics cards, or it was recommended for you. But I would still give you my straight forward advice, and this is : Go for NVIDIA Ge-FORCE graphics cards. Trust me, you would thank me for it later.
I didnt want to recommend a specific model for you though, because of our difference in country locations, but just try and get a high memory (like 256MB and above), NVidia Graphics card that is compatible with your system. Also check out the available slot on your system that you will use for it first before you go (So that you wont go and get an AGP slot card when you have just an open PCI Slot). I'm telling you this because I've used A LOT of graphics cards also (Over 10 years now)! and I've come to that conclusion that NVIDIA makes the best graphics card.
Hope this helps you out.

Can i run ati radeon x1650 512 on asus k8N motherboard

Yes you can run the AGP version of the Radeon 1650 pro on your system. It is always best & recommended to upgrade memory in pairs. You could upgrade to `gb by purchasing a 1 gb kit which would be 512 x 2. That way you have a matching pair of RAM modules. As for a cpu upgrade you can go to the Asus website and see what cpu's are supported by your motherboard. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Hi noxiney, you're MSI motherboard does have 1 opened AGP 8x4x slot. You can install & run the ATI Radeon X1650 PRO AGP. You can not run PCI-Express because there are no PCI-E slots on the board. There are PCI (White in color) on the board but the AGP slot is much faster than the PCI (White in color slots). The manual states the AGP card can only support 1.5volt video cards & not 3.3volt AGP cards. (Keep this in mind when looking for an AGP card).
Below is a link to a bunch of AGP 8x4x video cards. One or two include DDR2 memory. Carefull where you buy. Check the warranty. (Longer is better). The first one on the list would be compatible. Its not DDR2 but it does have 512MB of memory.

This card is 1.5v compatable.
& this is compatable.
Just remember, if the card can run both 8x & 4x it should support the 1.5volt needed to function on the MB.

GeForce 7600GS AGP 512MB card compatibility

it's hard to know,  it may be best to take your pc into a computer store and get them to test the compatability before you take it out of the store,  that way you can be sure that it works
