i have upgraded from an nvidia geforce 2 mx400 to the ati radeon x1650 pro agp. before i upgraded i could play counter strike no problem, however now when i play i get like lag. when i move the mouse the game takes a second or two to catch up. it dosent happen all the time but it is frequent. i have tried updating and backdating drivers and this dosent work. i have tried different memory, this didnt help. the only thing i can find that could possibly be the cause is the southbridge. this ios running at avery hot 68C.
does anybody have any idea wat i can do to solve the problem.

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 better yet..just upgrade motherboard that takes PCI express cards instead...agp is outdated but still being used by a small percentage of users with old computers
I wouldnt know whether you just like ATI Graphics cards, or it was recommended for you. But I would still give you my straight forward advice, and this is : Go for NVIDIA Ge-FORCE graphics cards. Trust me, you would thank me for it later. I didnt want to recommend a specific model for you though, because of our difference in country locations, but just try and get a high memory (like 256MB and above), NVidia Graphics card that is compatible with your system. Also check out the available slot on your system that you will use for it first before you go (So that you wont go and get an AGP slot card when you have just an open PCI Slot). I'm telling you this because I've used A LOT of graphics cards also (Over 10 years now)! and I've come to that conclusion that NVIDIA makes the best graphics card. Hope this helps you out. Goodluck!
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.
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.

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
