I have an old OEM computer with a Pentium 4 Northwood processor. I wanted to take the computer, up the RAM and get a video card for it to play old games (games from the late 90's early 2000's) The problem is this computer has only one 4x 8x AGP slot. I was looking at the Radeon 3450 and the Radeon 4670. My question is while old and obsolete compared to today will the 4670 be to much for the Pentium. The Pentium is pretty slow and weak and the Radeon came after the Pentium so ther were some good advancements in the field of video graphics.
The 4670 was on par with the 3850 which was consider the best of the agp cards.
The 3850 could handle WoW on low settings but I was running a Pentium D (dual core p4) back then. Not sure how a p4 will handle it.
You need to be aware of the special drivers you need because the card uses an interface chip to convert the agp bus signals to the pcie signals that the actual card uses. You cant just use the regular radeon drivers. You need to always look for the Hotfix drivers http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/CatalystAGPH...
