ATI Radeon x1050 - Backwards-Compatible?

Recommended Posts

I have an old Dell Dimension 8200 and I recently bought a 256 MB Visiontek ATI Radeon X1050 to replace the 64 MB GeForce4 Ti 4200 it came with. The performance increase has been a little underwhelming. I know the Radeon X1050 isn't running at maximum performance since it's in a AGP 4x slot, but is it OK that the slot is 1.5V? Are there any video cards that might perform better in a AGP 4x slot but are still fairly new?

The X1050 is already running at maximum performance. AGP slot has nothing to do with it. It's a POS card.

 

You can pickup a Geforce 7600GS for $85 (with rebate) at newegg.

I'm with DosFreak on this one, I would have either gone with the nVidia 7600GS or the ATi X16xx cards, but right now even CompUSA has the 7600GS cards for pretty cheap at the retail level wink
