I posted a problem a few days ago, cocerning my video. It would constantly reboot or drop me back to the desktop after playing video games. I have an Athlon 750, on an FIC Motherboard w/ 751 chipset. I was using a geForce2 mx200, so i tried an ATI 7200 Radeon, but both had the same problem, i figured it might be a conflict with the CPU brand, and the geForce2, but that wasnt it. I followed the advice given to me on my previous post, reconfigured the bios, nothing, disabled the "fast write" option nothing, so i did some more reading, and found a couple things discussing some conflicts AMD was having with AGP, so I went out and bought yet ANOTHER card, this time a geforce2 mx400, PCI version, now everything is okee dokee.

Thanks To All Who Tried To Help,
Joey

Now, my delema lies here, it appears that more than likely with the information from the site posted above, i should be able to reinstall my AGP card, but my question is this, which one is better. I have the original video card i was using geForce2 mx200 64megs, and i now have this newer card that i just bought, geforce2 mx 400 PCI? Which one should i keep?

Thanx,

Joey

Thats a tough call, the 400 will out perform the 200 generally but I'm not sure that the pci version of the 400 will outperform the agp version of the 200.

I would think the pci bus would limit bandwidth and transfer rate as it runs much slower than the agp bus

Just an opinion

by the way, sorry about the bad link, I was in a hurry and didn't check it.

It's alright I'm gonna be having a few rough days in a row since I have a speech to give tomorrow which won't be too bad, but a big project due next tuesday, some C++ programs to do and a VB program to finish. Wish me luck.
