Best AGP video card for gamers on old computer
18 July 2011
Summary: This card is the real deal. Right out the box it fired up on my old 8x AGP mobo and gave it the heart transplant it needed. Im running it on a custom HTPC and the video playback is unreal. Sharpness, clarity, visual harmony all are in tune with this fine product and at 1 gig ram it runs very quiet and cool.
Summary: AGP! 1GB Ram.HD 4650 GPU. Can now run games at 1920x1080 res. New AGP Hotfix drivers released, Catalyst 10.4 from AMD. I bought this video card to upgrade my aging PC, works great after you get it set up. high bench scores for an AGP x8 Card. Saved my 2006 PC from the recycling factory. It runs great and smooth, all of the time. I used to be able to run BF2 with Low settings and only get about 30 FPS.
Tough to install on Windows XP SP3, but nice afterwards

Summary: When my old ATI Radeon 9500 Pro video card's fan began to fail, I searched for a good replacement and found the XFX Radeon HD 4650 to be relatively current and reasonably priced. POSITIVES: * It is available as an AGP card (that's becoming rare these days!). * It is backward compatible with my Asus P4PE's AGP 2.0 (i.e., 4X) limitation. * It uses a standard 4-pin molex connector for power, not the newer PCI-E power connector.
Difficult to Install in an XP system but will breathe life to your old AGP-based computer

Summary: The XFX Radeon 4650 AGP video card will extend the life of your AGP-based system until you have enough money to upgrade to a PCIe-2.0 based system. You will need this card if you plan to play Starcraft 2 in an AGP-based system. With this card, I was able to play the Starcraft 2 Beta in 2vs2 games at [...] at 1440X900X32 bits setting with High Texture, High Shadows, High Lighting, High Shadow, High Terrain, and High Model qualities.
Summary: The Card hardware is great the driver CD is no use & I was faced with the "no ATI card found" problem searching the Internet to find that the problem is common to Radeon AGP cards the solution is to download the latest AGP driver from ATI site & again the installation will fail but this time the driver is un-compressed in a folder that can be used to complete the installation manually I wasted a lot of time to benchmark the card using 3 different motherboards to find out...
