Hello,I Planning on building a P3 Tualatin 1.4ghz vintage gaming rig
to play FPS like Unreal or Quake2
or Doom3, also Mechwarrior4 what is the best video card I could buy for playing games like that,I would prefer a Nvidia card but open to ATI
You need to check the exact spec of the motherboard before proceeding. AGP uses 3.3v 1.5v or .8v signalling depending on version and although the slots and cards should be keyed to prevent damage not all were. If it is keyed and you get the wrong card it will not fit, if you get the wrong card and it's not keyed...Pop!
If you're unsure have a read here:
I'd say the best AGP card you can actually buy is the ATI Radeon HD 4650. Depending on what OS you're using, I think you should rather base your purchase on the drivers available lol. I recently was setting up a laptop with Win98, and the one part I could not find drivers for was the GPU. So I went ahead and installed Ubuntu 10.10.
Actually it is a AGP slot, and the motherboard I was planning on using is a MSI 694T PRO it has a 4x AGP slot I am not sure about the voltage requirements for the AGP slot but thanks in advance for all for your responses is any one familiar with that motherboard? Again any suggestions I would like to run all of the games a max graphic settings @ like 80+ fps
