GeForce 7600GS AGP 512MB card 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 GeForce 7600GS AGP 512MB card? (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?

    I do not know which brand of GeForce 7600GS it is that I can get from a computer store.

    2 technicians from 2 different computer stores told me that they may and may not work. I suppose I could buy it since it won't be much and if it doesn't work hold onto it and put it in a custom built system down the track

    That could work, but then I would be still in the same predicament as I am in now. It is fine doing everything that I normally, with the exception of running Guild Wars. Installed Guild Wars Nightfall on the 12th October and that is where the gfx go all weird.



     



    My brother suggested that it may be trying to work harder and faster than it can or take the card out and put it back in to see if there is a difference. This has only ocurred since I got the inside of the tower cleaned and have tried to run Guild Wars since it being cleaned.

    Thanks for the help bluegreenash, which would you recommend in purchasing? I really have no preference whether I get a nVidia or a ATI card. I think Guild Wars runs better on nVidia cards

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

    well if you buy it from a store and it doesn't work you can take it back as incompatible.

    I prefer Nvidia myself......although with both manufacturers they pretty much only make the chip used, so it may be best to check the reviews to find a good buy

Can you suggest an agp 8x video card compatible with a7v880 mobo? thanks! my nvidia fx5200 got busted...


Hello.

Since you have a ASUS A7V880 Motherboard, this means you have a VIA chipset, which does not like ATi Video Cards.

You can only go with Nvidia AGP Video Cards.

Current "Available" Models are

Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 , 5500
Nvidia GeForce 6200, 6600 GS
Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS, 7600GS


The Best Graphic Card available from the Nvidia GeForce series is the 7600GS

What AGP is compatible with my ECS KT400 motherboard and AMD Athlon 1900+ processor? I currently have NVIDIA Geforce2 MX 400 64MB and I want to upgrade it to 128MB or 256MB.


Hi,

Any AGP card is supposed to work. Doesn't matter what spec. Don't expect huge performance increases by just upgrading gfx card. Games might run better visually.

Cheers.
Please rate.

Video card


Hi ,

Appreciate the direct "Ask me" again.

On your last post, you specified your PC to have AMD Sempron 2400+ 512 Mb DDR2. (). Offhand, I would go for the Nvidia for performance but for durability, the Radeon would be better. Depends on how you want the video card used. Perhaps you may want to consider first is compatibility that is if your motherboard will accept a PCI-E video card. There are some versions that only have provision for an AGP video card.

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

It would be appreciated if you could rate all the solutions that has been provided to you as you see it fit here, here and this one.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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
