I´m interested in changed my graphic card to a highest one.
I´ve recently tried the radeon 9600 pro, but it seems to be uncompatible with my motherboard because it didn´t work well, it blocked my computer and i can´t hardly play games, so i´m going to change it.
So I write you, just in case you could help me, and recommend me a graphic card you could know that matches and works well with my motherboard.
My motherboard is an ASROCK P4VT8+ chipset VIA VT8763 Apollo PT800, and I´m looking for an AGP card with 256 MB,
When I was trying to play a game, it loaded the previous credits, and depending on the game, the screen became black, so I can do nothing, other times, I can´t come back to windows so I had to reiniciate my computer, or in other occasiones an VPU ERROR appears from the Ati Control panel,
I tried reinstalling the drivers, the games, clenaning the register...changing values on the BIOS...but nothing. so I had to return it to the shop.
Finally they determined that it could be due to the voltage, so they recommend me to look for other graphic card.

my advice to you is to save up or spend on credit or somthing about 800$ or slightly less. maybe get the intel e6300 and like a radeon x850 or even better the x1900, very cheap comparativly. but i think your radeon 9600 is broken or your motherboard is. P4's are gay
I wouldnt do that if i were you you would then have another graphics card. and of course I dont know for certain but if you bought the 9600 pro new, there almost cannot be anything wrong with it. Did you call ati tech support? what games are you trying to play? the radeon 9250 doesnt support DBX9 while the 9600 pro does is it posible that the games are so old they like arent compatible with DBX9.c? P4's are/were money hungry, energy guseling, and net burst sucks! DEATH TO NETBURST and intel should have skipped the pentium D's alltogeather. you almost could have called me a amd fanboy uptill the conroe and even the smaller cached umm... well E6300 and E6400's
enough of that though
1. What games are you playing?
2. did you call ati tech support?
then lastly get a new mobo unless you want to spring for a new computer.
but I want to know what country your from and what games your playing. I'm curios
