I have a homebuilt with a mobo that has a AGP video card slot. The video card is failing and I need to replace it. Quickly!
How do I tell what speed the AGP port is so I can buy a replacement.
Also, I'm open to suggestions. This is my 2nd PC and it's used only for surfing, Quicken, office, and some internet card games. today I have a ATI all-in-wonder that has a TY input into it. I'd like to keep that capability, but not neceessarily required.
How about the video memory bus maybe 128bit or 256bit?How can one tell?
as far as interface
Wont the bios tell you ? Under advanced options video? the drop down window will say 4x-8x and what mb size? That was how i was able to tell on mine. It did not say 4x 8x it just showed voltages that i was able to cross reference to 8x. it was on pny webiste.
Speed Signalling Voltage
1x/2x 1.5V or 3.3V
4x 0.8V or 1.5V
Also How many Gaps the female connector has 1 is1x/2x 2 gaps is 4x
Well, if your video card's dead, and there's no backup display adapter, such as some other AGP or PCI video card, on-board graphics... You're really in quite a fix, then. As long as the slot isn't 3.3v, it should work fine with a modern AGP x4/x8 card.
