Question about ATI 3D Rage II, (2 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Choppy play with high quality video

My computer is a bit dated

Ati technologies 3D rage Video card with 4 MB of memory( no 3d or texture acceleration)


440 mHz processor

512 MB ram
Now, some lower quality video on line plays just fine, but higher quality lags in video seriously. Audio seems fine.

I have an up to date sound card.

Woulds a new video card help with this video lag?
or even a used video card with 3D acceleration or better memory than 4 MB

I figure if the sound card works,why wouldn't a new video card.

Others on this same service with a newer computer have great video play.
So its not the provider or service witch is Verizon.

A replacemnet video card would help some, but you still have the problem of the 440 mhz processor.

There is not a lot you can do about the processor outside of rebuilding the whole computer. If for some reason that is not an option for you, then yeah, a $20 video card from ebay might give some relief (if you know what to get.. AGP or PCI), but don't be surprised if your processor is just too taxed to render high quality video at the proper rate.

So which video card do i need? i have 845gl motherboard . before installing this video card (rage XL 8mb pci) my pc plays videos and most 3d game very (even gta sanandreas) efficiently but now it is not...


Hi,

The ATI Rage XL 8MB PCI video card is a very old and low power video card.

PCI graphics cards are not as fast as AGP graphics cards so if your motherboard has an AGP slot (it's the slot closest to the CPU and is usually coloured brown) then that would give you better performance.

These days AGP has been superceded by PCI-Express but since your motherboard does not have a PCI-Express slot then the best graphics card for it would be something like this one:

Hope this helps, please rate my answer :)

3d rage is part of the software package that comes with the video card. Do you not have an ATI Rage Video card on your computer?

If you do not see your graphics driver listed on this ATI link;
http://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894

You'll have no choice but to download from this other site;
http://www.driverfiles.net/Video-Adapters/ATI/3D-Rage-LT-Pro/download/page,sh,1485,254,5,.html

The card is just too old. There are no updated drivers around.
Either of these two cards listed on this link can replace your old AGP 4x card;
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=879

DF.NET (Above), will charge you a fee to download the drivers you are looking for & there is no promise they will function correctly.
