    Hi. Im new here and i have a problem. I want to add a new video card to my computer. My mother board is BIOS: AWARD SOFTWARE 4.50 PG. The video card I got is a RADEON 7000 PCI BUS VERSION. The video installed now is a S3 TRIO64V+pci (765)
    In the booklet that came with the RADEON, says """
    install AGP Drivers for non-intel chipset boards."

    How do I know if my board is non intel chipset based. Can anyone help me firgure this out???

    HI! and welcome to TSG

    I don't think you have to worry about AGP issues, since your installing a PCI card

    There is a freeware utility called AIDA32 which will tell you anything you need to know about your computers' hardware and software. Look here;http://www.aida32.hu/aida32.php

    There's a new preview version released last week or the version I have dated 13/12/2002. Unless your system is very new you probably won't need the preview version, which may be similar to a beta release.

    This program should be able to identify everything about your motherboard and its chipset and probably provide a link to the makers website as well.

    As with any new program, make sure you read all the instructions and be sure you know what its doing. Since this program is only collecting information already on your computer, it should not be changing any settings etc.
