    I have a 9800 a-i-w card, and am getting poor scores in programs like 3dmark and aquamark.
    I was thinking it was because when I goto device settings, AGP speed is set to "off", and when I move the slider to "8x" it asks to restart to apply settings. I do so, and when I come back to the settings, it is still set to off.

    Anyone know why?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Does the motherboard support 8x is the first question.

    Chances are that 8x is not set in the BIOS. Are you using SMARTGART on an ATI card?

    You'll need to enter BIOS setup and configure your AGP settings. Be sure AGP and not PCI is set as your default display device (if there is such a setting). Disable FastWrite and try it after you get your problem solved.
