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

Eto naman Specs ng Video card mo:
Product Name : X1650 PRO 512MB AGP
Video Memory 512 MB DDR2 Bus Standard AGP 8x/4x
Only cards that work with this board are AGP 4x graphics cards or possiblly AGP 8x cards that are backwards compatible. If you buy an 8x card do your research to make sure it's backwards compatible before purchase. Newer graphics cards are pci-express x16 or pci-e 2. These will not work with your board. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
Your motherboard have an AGP 4X port, you can easy upgrade whit that card since it is an APG-card. Not sure tough that your motherboard can handle all that DDR3 power witch come with the card but im sure u will notice a big improvment.
I think that a cheaper card with 512 Mb DDR2 will give u the same results.
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
The 7600 gt can work on an agp 4x motherboard only in a 4x bus speed, if your just using the cd driver that comes with the video card try updating it by downloading the latest driver in www.nvidia.com, first uninstall the driver then restart the computer then install the latest driver you downloaded
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. http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=AGP+ATI+Radeon+X1650+PRO&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title
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
