Not trying to be argumentative or anything, but Windows 7 runs great on my socket-A board, with AGP GFX. Even better than XP-Pro SP3.

Actually, I was kind of headed in that direction....I have an Abit NF7-s, and a Asus
-A8M2N-LA, the latter of which is what I was needing the card for, but will do fine for the Abit. ever heard of iatkos? It allows you to run MAC OS on a PC...Was going to attemp a dual boot(or straight up)

Funny you should mention your Abit board. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x86 on an Abit KW7, with an AGP. You can see the full system specs HERE. It runs rather fast to be honest with you.

I LOVE Abit boards. I also have a socket 939 Abit Fatal1ty board, and it friggin' ROCKS!

And by the way, that was one helluva' find there smarteyball!

I'm pretty sure it's a AGP 8x Volari V8 128MB Video Card with VGA, TV-Out & DVI

XGI Tech PV8RL04 V8 128MB AGP Retail

The PCB is the same and so are the capacitor layouts.

But it's definitely and AGP card in the Volari range.

I wasn't bagging AGP. I have an 7600GS AGP in one of my machines running Seven. I was just saying that this particular card would be unsuitable for Vista/Seven due the lack of vram, but more importantly the driver issue

Cheers all. Just luck and a bit of PCB comparison.

(Assuming that it is the card of course )

Actually, that's a half way decent GFX card. I've used MUCH worse. My AGP card is running drivers from 2006 as well. Runs great, I might add.
