9600XT or 9800XT + ASUS P5A rev1.03, works?

Post by NoM$_YesLinux »

Hi guys,

Anyone has tested a 9600XT or a 9800XT on a P5A rev1.03, well, I want to know if these more recent AGP VGA's will work in my old Socket 7 Warrior! :D

If needs, my rig:

K6-2+ 500 @ 605 2.2v + 100% Cooper heatsink + 60mm fan
ASUS P5A rev 1.03
256mb Corsair PC-150 @ 110 2-2-2-6
(Cr@ppy :lol: ) Inno3D Riva TNT2 M64 32mb 100/125 :x
4.3gb HD
Generic 400W PSU
Windows XP SP3

Thanks for help, and sorry my bad english. :wink:

EDIT: Well, I have searched and the answer is NO!!!
Anyone has tested a Radeon 9500 or 9700?

I am told they will work; though I have not personally tried them. I have used a Radion 9000 on a DFI K6BV3+/66 and also used a Radion 7500 AIW on a P5A-B, which works fine once you sort out the memory conflicts you get running Win98-SE.

tried 9800pro but ran into some troubles - sometimes card would not be recognized, drivers failed to load. in the end I gave up but did not really try hard to solve the issues ...

@ Alley Viper : I think you are right. My error, never had any of those cards, got them confused. Sorry all.

There is a couple of discussions regarding the best VGA card you can plug into a K6 machine.
Just use the search function.
9700 and 9500 will work with no probs (like Geforce FX5950 and down)
I doubt you can use the 9800pro, maybe a 9800SE@PRO but I don 't guarantee. For the 9600XT there is a no go, it's keyed for 1.5V only.
If you want a balanced system with perfect DVD acceleration you can use a Radeon 8500 or a 9200 128bit.

It will be far more faster than the Geforce you are using.
