I currently have an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 AGP card in my Dell Dimension 8200 Desktop PC and I was wandering about replacing that card for an ATI card something like the ATI radeon 9600 AGP card but I noticed that the drivers
for that card are only for Windows Vista and are not Officially supported under Windows 7 and I was wandering just how good those drivers are for that Graphics card as they are Vista Drivers runnin in Windows 7! Do they get any laggyness in the Aero Display effects when you open and close some windows and also within media centre?
I only a few months back changed to the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 AGP card from the original NVIDIA GeForce 3 Ti200 Graphics Card my Dell PC Came with and I made a mistake with that card as the card is very laggy in Windows Vista and Windows 7 but does display aero but the Lag is so annoying! Its because the drivers for that card are from 2006 and were never official and they were BETA drivers and never came out as a fully operational set of Drivers!
If I was to buy the ATI Radeon 9600 AGP card I would like to have my mind set at rest that my PC would not have the lag of the drivers being too old or out of date or incompatible in both windows Vista and Windows 7!
Please Tell me what Card you think is worth the Money to buy (It has to be an AGP card that will run Aero and work well with a 250W Power supply and have drivers updated!)
I also have my Eye on the NVIDIA GeForce 6200 AGP card which I know is a really good card as I know someone with that card in their machine (and although it runs on XP the drivers are updated all the time) and even though their PC is a PCI Express Graphics Card Slot it still works perfectly and nearly every month NVIDIA updates the drivers for that card so your never outdated!
