Motherboard only supports 4x agp, I hear the 1950gt doesn't Tags: Graphics Cards Motherboards Graphics Last response: June 8, 2007 12:17 AM in Graphics & Displays Share shambling June 7, 2007 8:36:47 PM support 4x and only supports 8x agp. Anyone know what the highest/best performing agp card is that definitely can run on 4x agp? And another question: Will I notice any difference between a x1600pro agp at 4x agp, and a higher rated card at 4x agp, or my mobo/cpu going to be a huge bottleneck? (d845wn intel mobo/p4 2.6ghz) I'd like to play bf2142, as I really like the previous battlefield games. I'd also like to play oblivion at a framerate higher than 5 outdoors More about : motherboard supports agp hear 1950gt blade85 June 7, 2007 9:34:05 PM weeellll your cpu will be a bigger bottleneck than the 4x agp port. I know for a fact that the x1950 pro runs on 4x and 8x agp as i have used it on both even with the bottleneck you should see a fairly big performance gain with a x1950 pro than the x1600 by the way, make sure you have a good enough psu to take the x1950 card Xazax310 June 7, 2007 10:23:56 PM Keep your cash. the X1600PRO will serve you fine until you can get a PCI-E computer with Core 2.

Seconded. shambling June 8, 2007 12:17:17 AM I've been toying with builds. But it usually comes back to trying not to spend more than $500 at one time. edit: I've upgraded the PSU to a 550 watt. The next step is a new mobo/processor/video card/memory. I'm just kind of depressed that they've come out with DDR3 now, so that any build I make now will be in the same situation as my current one in probably 2 years. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
