I have not been able to add any AGP card to my PC.
My PC is a cube PC so I have been trying to install a "low end" AGP video card without a separate power connector. My only really requires are DirectX 9.x support and a minimum of 128MB (and no power connector)
The card I am currently trying to install is a Gigabyte ATI Radeon 9600Pro with 256MB.
I have also tried a ATI Radeon 9550 with 256MB and a Nvidia card
I have done all of the usual things, such as disabling onboard graphics, removing old video drivers, verified latest chipset drivers are installed, I reviewed the graphic adapter and don't see any conflicts etc.
I wonder if any of the cards I am trying to install will work with my AGP slot.
The manual for this Gigabyte card states "AGP 3.0 Slot or greater is required"
Unfortunately, this requirement wasn't on the Gigabyte or NewEgg web sites or the back of the box. Only in the install manual.
My Motherboard manual states "AGP 1.5v Card is required".
I got great AGP information from www.playtool.com
. I used some of the tools suggested there such as Sandra Lite and other tools to try to determine what version my AGP Slot is. These tools don't seem to clearly state what
My PC is a Small Form Factor PC with 220W Power Supply.
It has integrated Intel Extreme Graphics
gBox P4 Blue CF-986L
Motherboard is a CFI-968L with last bios released (1.04)www.american-media.com
Pentium 4 3.06Ghz
Chipset is Intel 845GE
Intel Extreme Graphics
Windows XP Home
This is a awesome PC and I really would like to extend the life of it my adding any AGP card that supports DirectX 9.x
