Does ANYBODY know where I can find a x1600 'PCI' card?
I have been searching for over a week with now luck. I already have a x1600 PCIe dual card filling up my one and only PCIe slot and I need to add another monitor. And undortunately Vista seems to require that all cards to use the exact same drivers.
Thanks for the reply. I have a dual dvi output card with both adapted to vga installed. The onboard graphics card is disabled due to Vista. Here is info about it:
Compaq Presario SR1717
Windows Vista 32-bit
Radeon X1600 PCIe Series (S/N:260620074671, PN:102A6712400 000003)
NOTE: The Serial Number appears to be a preinstalled HP OEM variant of the Radeon X1600 PCIe with HP Driver Version: 8.500.0.0, 5/14/2008 <--Per ATI
I also had come to the conclusion that there was never a x1600 PCI manufactured, however when I emailed ATI asking for a card that would best work with the x1600 driver they said the x1600 PCI. I thought that maybe I was missing something, so I did a bunch more searching, and then ended up posting here.
ATI also said if I couldn't find an x1600 PCI, is should replace the x1600 dual PCIe with a x1550 dual PCIe or a x1300 dual PCIe and then add a x1550 PCI or a x1300 PCI respectively to get the third monitor capability.
Sorry if there is any naiveness to my thoughts/questions.
