I bought my AGP 512MB ATI Radeon X1650 Pro on last december and it's simply awesome.
But there are a couple of games that I can't play with my new card, like Prey and F.E.A.R.
With Prey, it simply won't start and I always get an error (a bit strange, because I can run Doom 3 with Ultra High settings in 1152x864 with 30-60 FPS).
And with F.E.A.R., the game does start, the map loads fine and all, BUT, when the game starts, I can see all of the HUD messages and hear all the sounds, but everything else is pitch black... I can hear my footsteps, shoots, music, everything, but I can't see a thing...
Again, It's not too relevant, because I have much better games (like Crysis, Call of Duty 4, Bioshock, etc...), but I want them to work fine with fancy high settings ;).

try ebay,or craigslist. you will need a credit card. or just google it and see if there is someone willing to ship to where you are. better yet..just upgrade motherboard that takes PCI express cards instead...agp is outdated but still being used by a small percentage of users with old computers
check if the games take too much memory so that the card not able to work, if you used to play it before without problem, check the card fan if its working,and at the same time check your computer cooling if its cool enough.
Yes you can run the AGP version of the Radeon 1650 pro on your system. It is always best & recommended to upgrade memory in pairs. You could upgrade to `gb by purchasing a 1 gb kit which would be 512 x 2. That way you have a matching pair of RAM modules. As for a cpu upgrade you can go to the Asus website and see what cpu's are supported by your motherboard. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
For this card they recomment at leat a power supply rating of 450 watts. If you have lower than this then I would suggest upgrading the power supply. A 550 watt psu is reasonably priced and should give you plenty of power for future use. Hope this helps.
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
