Hi,

My video card just died (ATI Radeon 8500). I've always had problems with it, but just now it started to kill the video signal to the monitor with about everything I did in Windows. I restored a back up from 2 months ago, when I didn't have this problem, but it didn't help. So that brings me to the conclusion my Radeon is fucked (yes, also tried other drives, cables and bla bla).

I'm now running on an old TNT2 card which sucks real bad. The CPU load when watching a XViD movie is >100%. My system is an AMD Athlon 700 MHz, 512MB and a MSI-6195 (K7 Pro) motherboard which only supports 2x AGP. My question: will a videocard that is made for AGP 8X word on my AGP slot? I want to buy the nVIDIA Geforce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X, 64MB DDR Memory, TV-Out card. I hardly ever play games. Just need it to watch movies (DivX/XViD mostly) and since it's only about 40, I figured it's one of the cheapest around at the moment.

I hope anyone reads this. This forum section doesn't seem to be too popular

what chipset does your mainboard have? it depends on the chipset whether AGP x8 will be supported...

* Chipset: AMD Irongate chipset. (Northbridge) 200MHz EV6 System Interface speed.
* 100MHz SDRAM. 1x/2x AGP.
* AMD 756(TM) (Viper) chipset.
* (Southbridge).
* OHCI USB. APIC.
* ACPI Power Management.


I don't need to get 8X AGP speed, that's not possible, but I wonder if the card would automatically adjust to the max AGP speed (2x in this case).
