I bought an ati radeon 8500 about a week ago and i can't get everything working. I am running an athlon 1.2Ghz on an iwill mobo with the Ali Magic 1 chipset. has anyone heard about compatability issues with this mobo, or chipset?
text is garbled and messiah, max payne, and aquanox all cause problems.

Did you install the updated drivers? The supplied drivers have a flaw that prevents them from working on many AMD systems, the new driver (available on ATI's website) fixes that and many other issues.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

Yeah i tryed the new drivers and i have tryed winxp, 98 SE, and ME, all with every combination of drivers possible, i also tryed installing a new agp driver for my motherboard and that also did not solve the problem. Thanks for the help though
