I dont know if this is the place to put this but oh well.
I just recently bought myself a ati radeon x1650 pro AGP8X with 512mb of ram, i installed it into my computer installed the drivers and tried to test it with a game (Farcry) and it ran worse than my old Radeon 9250! even a simple game like freelancer it lags to hell!!!! Is there any known problems with this card or something that could be restricting the power of the card?

yeah i have the ice cooling system on the card itself so it wouldnt let me run the thing without it

PSU? sorry not that good with little computer components.

As for everything else i have a ASROCK Conroe865PE with a Celeron D 3.06ghz processor and at the moment only 768mb of ram.

just found out what that means. I have a 400watt supply system.
I mean the card works but i dont think it works properly for some reason because my old 9250 can out do it

a defective ram stick. I had that. The computer would power up, with all fans spinning, but that's it, no POSTing, no booting.

this is the second time it has happened though. with different sticks and different sellers... weird.... even more weird the first stick was supposed to be a one gig chip but i put it in another computer and it only read it as a 512mb chip.... course i think that was the motherboard being crappy at that stage but yeah so it wasnt the ram its the motherboard or something to do with it....
