Hello,
I picked up a GeForce4 ti 4200 with 128 megs of ram.
I took out my old card put this baby in and all was great.
Then I started to think about it after a month or so. My old card was a pci card the new Geforce is a AGP card...so I go and take a look if I do in fact have an AGP on my mother board and whala thank god I did but that brought me back to another problem while I was looking at my settings in my Bios.....which was set to pci....so I changed it to AGP...my question is How do I know if the port is actually running my new card at the higher out-put of the agp....because in my adapter settings it still says it is connected to the pci bus....

Regards,
Taurus

uninstall your old card completly... if it was an nvidia card use detanator destroyer if u were using the det drivers. I would suggest that u totally reinstall the software for this card using one of the drivers from Nvidia's site. the only way u will know if your card is running properly is run some benchmarks or just try a game like say GTA3 and see how bad or good it is.
