Windows 7: Good AGP Card

17 Sep 2009   #11

7600.20510 x86

I don't get why the core clock is only 600 mHz on the 4650. And memory is only 1000 mHz, effective?

My 3850 AGP without manual overclocking (it is OC from factory in bios) is 720 mHz and I get it to 805 mHz stable, no volt mod. And I've never found the highest I can overclock the memory. I get it from 1820 to 2350 mHz and haven't tried anything higher. It would go though lol. It's GDDR3 256 bit. A link to it is here if anyone is interested. I highly recommend it although it could still be pricey. I dunno. Two slots are necessary though. One AGP and one whatever-is-next-to-AGP slot. Most likely PCI slot, or sometimes empty. Latest ATI hotfix driver always installs well over old. No problems ever with drivers in XP/Vista/7.

Overall though, that 4650 will be an excellent card but perhaps you can find one by HIS that is even better. Here are their current offerings.

Oh, alright. I think I understand now. Like a P4 2.66 gHz isn't the same as an i7 2.66. Gotcha.

Thanks for the help guys. I have a 500 watt supply if I remember right so that should be ok. I know its at least 400.

Thanks again.
