Hello, This APU has built in HD 7540D graphx.
What is that equivalent to in AMD Radeon HD graphx?
Does anyone know if this is better than the radeon x1950xtx?
I know thats a old one.
I am building another windows xp media center edition 2005 pc for my old games. The best dual core processor they had at tigerdirect was this APU.
And I cant pair it with a HD 6570 because its xp.
And I had to get 4 gigs total (4 1gb sticks) of crucial ddr3. (XP)
I want to play games at the most need for speed most waned underground and underground 2 all of the colin mcraes rallisport challenge to name a few.
I think it should work out pretty good but I dont know? I mean because I don't know what a
HD 7540D is equal to by itself. And I have wanted to know for years where the x1950xtx stood in with the HD's (6570 and abov)

I would appreciate any help or advice you could give me.

Are you sure you absolutely need windows xp? Im sure most programs could be ran in windows 7 with compatibility mode and work fine, then you shouldn't have to worry about that stuff

Best solution

zycuda: I have games that will run under xp even though they say recomended os 95/98/ME/2000.
When I try to run as administrator and put the compatibility mode in above on windows 7 home premium (hp)
it is all yellow and pink psychadelic.
