I just updated my video card from a ti4200 64 meg 4x agp to an his x1650 512 meg 4x/8x agp. my mobo is only 4x agp, which i have read is not a problem. everything runs great except when it comes to playing my one game that i always play. that is America's army. it seams that there will be lines that start from a wall that weren't there with my old card. the lines sometimes go straight and never get bigger. then some of them go into a large triangle. i have tried all sorts of settings to get rid of this and no luck. when i chenge the res the lines go away but then come back. i just installed this vid card so i have only the latest ccc and drivers that you can pull of off ati website. i have read people going back to 7.7 version because of problems with the newer games. is this the best thing to do? this is also being run on a 1600 xp cpu with 1.25 gigs of ram.

Re: x1650 agp does strange things in games
You have a interesting nice problem here..first of all check in the bios settings for the AGP aperture..make it maximum possible,in your case 4x. -after that check the conection of your video card on the mainboard,clean the agp slot a little .. -a good solution is to reinstal the windows..sometimes,like in your case,some parts of old nvidia drivers are still resident .. -try reinstaling the catalist drivers but older versions,to see if the problem persists.. well I suggest you to do all theese steps.. I would do them if I were you..actually,I had few times your problem.. bye

If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
how big of a power supply in your machine if it is factory one you might need to buy a bigger power supply ..i would also try going to the website of the video card and make sure you have the updated drivers this could be the cause to
You did the right thing just not in the correct order. Did you update windows? You'll need .Netframwork 2.0, do not skip lower versions of .Net framework & download & install 1 at a time with a restart inbetween even if windows does not say you need to restart. The link below will take you to ATI's latest driver updates. After you download & save to disk. You'll need to uninstall any other version that reside in Add/Remove programs.

Most current AGP video cards are now 8X and they will still work with your motherboard but will just be limited to 4X. Trying to find a 4X might be time consuming whereas using an 8X downgraded to 4x would be comparatively easier and faster.
Additionally most Video cards will work under XP with the appropriate drivers but Vista has a limited list of compatible Video cards.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
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
