Outdated card? More like outdated board as well as the need to lose the leaked 7000 build entirely! At least the RC at this time!

The Radeon HD 2xxx series cards are still seeing active support for the present time until you figure those will dropped when the next 5xxx? model series is out.

Have the MSI version of the HD 2600XT here as well having needed to perform a clean install of the host OS however when running into problems with the latest Catalyst 9.7 now available. Other then the version that was first seen on the cd that came with the card when new that was the only other time I ran into any problems all through the former XP, Vista, 7 beta, now RCs.
