    Hey guys

    My email / wife's game machine needs a new video card. The fan failed and burnt the chip a bit... got some bad video now.

    I had a Anihilator Pro card in it, I found one still available, but just curious what you guys thought for an AGP 1x card.

    Thanks

    Hmmm, that's taking the memory back a long way - TNT / TNT2 maybe?

    Yep a TNT2 would be the safe bet as any higher is likely to add stability problems to ya system.

    an Anihilator Pro is the Creative Geforce DDR card - going to an TNT2 would be step backwards in performance...what MB/chipset are your using - are you sure AGP1X is all it will support?

    Well if it can handle that (sorry but I'd never heard of that card here) why is the requirement only for 1x AGP as these were the very first SS7 mobo's out as most after that were 1x/2x AGP? :confused:

    But if we can clear that up then maybe a Radeon 7500 might fit the bill. ;)

    But also he maybe as far as he can go. :?:

    Hey guys, the mother board in it is an Abit BE6 board

    http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/be6/

    So the P3 700 I got in there is already on a slocket board. It's not the best thing, but it's good for what it's used for.

    I found a site where you can still get the Ani-Pro but, it's still like $75 ouch

    HMMM... I just loaded the links, and the motherboard says it's an AGP slot, nothing else. Yet when I go the videocard site, it says it's an AGP 4x card. I lost....:geek:

    Ok now that's much better info so I think a R9000 would be a good choice atm (ATi or Gigabyte version) for that plus you'll get DX8 support thrown in as well. :devil:
