Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card

1 Answer

I have an older system:K7S5A, AMD Athlon 1800+(a 1500 with the bios overclock),1GB PC2100(maxed out),GeForceTi 4200 ,4X AGP port. I am interested in upgrading to a new Video card.THe K7S5A has AGP1.5 for the 4X slot. I am interested in the Radeon x1650 PRO with 512MB memory. How can I determine if this card is compatable? It does state that it has a 4x/8x interface but doesnt state whether it has an AGP of 1.5 or 3.0, which both have different voltage. I dont want to buy the wrong card.

    Excellent! Your answer, along with the illustrated pictures, have assured me that the card I'm looking at is a viable option. This is part of a little project I'm working on to "soup up" my old PC as much as possible without changing the mobo, yet. I'm also considering getting a xp2400+ or a xp2600+, but I'm not sure what else it entails as far as BIOS and drivers, and other stuff I'm ignorant about. Is it worth the upgrade in processor speed to do it? By worth it I mean processing speed and not money.

    I also know I have to change the power supply. Min. requirement for the x1650 pro is 350watts. Should I go higher? Will a newer power supply fit in my old tower? Its a full size tower from 2002.

    Thank You, any and all input is appreciated, Mitchell

Hi,

The 4X and 8X denotes the speed of our agp port
The 1.5 and 3.0 denotes the voltage supplied by the agp to the GPU..

So you board support Graphic card with 4X speed and 1.5V voltage specification.

you should visit the manufacturer's website for. (there is generally a compatibility chart). Major brands such as Nvidia and ATI have this. The most simple way to tell if your card is compatible is to look at the agp slot on the motherboard and the pins on the card. a 1.5v compatible card has a "key" (slot) closest to the rear of the card. A universal card has 2 keys, one near the rear and one near thr front.


Please refer ATI website to check the compatibility with your board before buying graphics card


Here is the diagram to show the differences

How do you know when a memory stick is single-bank? I want to upgrade my A7V8X-X with 3 Gs, but I keep getting confuse how to determent what is single-bank! Is there a specific code in the product...


This is the memory spec for your motherboard...

3 x DDR DIMM Sockets
Max. 3 GB unbuffered PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC SDRAM Memory (PC3200 Max. to 2 banks only / PC2700 Max to 4 banks only)

Part of the memory spec will tell you if it is single sided (memory chips only on one side of board)
Double sided is memory chips on both sides of the board....Some systems will not work with double sided memory...

Would A 1GB PC3200 run in the K7s5a alone.


According to the specs the max amount of ram is 1 GB and max speed is pc2100 so a pc3200 would not run on it unless the board was able to clock the speed down of that single stick of ram.

I was not able to find the max amount of ram per slot on a quick search but most likely it would be 512 mb per slot for a max of 1 GB between the two DDR slots.

at Newegg you can find DDR 266 1 GB kits (2 x 512mb) which would get you the 1 GB of ram.

HOW CAN I UPGRADE MY SYSTEM


it depends on how big the ram and the hd is. the bigger the hd and ram the more expensive it is except for their transfer rates. if your planning on upgrading because of games, you will need atleast 7200 rpm for the hardisk which costs more than a typical one. but for all i know thats the default for a desktop. there are 10,000 rpm also which are more expensive than the bigger hd's. same with the RAM. you can check ebay for the price. but the price depends on the country you are in if your buying it from your place.

EliteGroup K7S5A (does not say pro on the board)


According to their website, the board can take:

AMD Athlon XP (Throughbred up to XP2600+)
AMD Athlon (including Thunderbird)
AMD Duron (including Morgan)


You can then overclock the processor with a BIOS upgrade available at http://www.ocworkbench.com/2002/ecs/k7s5abios/cheepobios.htm.

It has one 4X AGP slot so it can take any AGP video card, assuming the card is backwards compatible (8x -> 4x).
