Hi, I got a second hand x1650 agp card from an auction site (fully working apparently) On connecting it up to the psu and turning on the pc, nothing happened (except the motherboard yellow light came on on the pcb). My psu is a 350W. I tried to boot up again but this time i disconnected the 4 pin molex plug from the psu, and in horror i watched as the 3 diodes (D1, 3 &4) right next to the 4 pin plug socket, burn out!
Firstly, what are these diodes and where can i get them (or equivalent alternatives that will work)
and secondly, should this have occured (and why) or does this mean the board was dodgy to start with?
And, any chance of a schematic anywhere so i can try to repair it.
Look man that molex connector is providing the mass of the power that board uses w/o that i would think it'd be hard to fry anything unless the board was already screwed :( i think replacing them only to watch it happen again would be no fun :(

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 better yet..just upgrade motherboard that takes PCI express cards instead...agp is outdated but still being used by a small percentage of users with old computers
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
