MaestroHey, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Everything but the FX 5200 shown here,

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics Cards, AGP 4X/8X

has full Windows 7 support. the problem isn't the video card but the motherboard and what chipset is on it, and whether the chipset has a proper working AGP driver. Without that it doesn't matter whether the video card has Windows 7 support or not, as without a working AGP driver the video driver won't install.

Hi Stormy13,

Thanks for the link! I'll see where I can find one of those here in Quebec. I didn't have the time to look if there are some drivers for Win 7 for those cards, are they?

My motherboard is a SuperMicro P4DC6+ http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/860/P4DC6_.cfm

I already have an ASUS V7700TI AGP video card but I can't find the video drivers for Win 7. What I mean by supported is to be able to have the drivers that are fully compatible with Win 7 of coarse. I'm using the 32-bit version of Win 7 on this computer. You can find all information on my motherboad on the link above.

Thanks!

My GeForce FX5700 AGP will work on both 7 and 8, but you do need to fiddle with the drivers.

From memory, I used the Vista driver from the Nvidia site.

I have tested the drivers for XP in Win 7 32-bit, it works not too bad except that there are some little glitch when a window is opened and closed. So I believe it's not a good idea to use those drivers. I'm really looking for a video card and a driver set fully compatible with Win 7 32-bit.

Anything from the following will have full Windows 7 driver support,

1. AMD/ATI - HD 2xxx, HD 3xxx, HD 4xxx

2. Nvidia - Geforce 6xxx, 7xxx

The fun part with those cards is that in a lot of cases they cost more than the computer they would go into is worth. If you can find one used it helps, but the prices for new make it a less than desirable "upgrade".
