Default AGP 1x video cards?

I'm in desperate need of an AGP1x (or compatible) video card, and I
don't know where to start looking. A couple years ago I invertantly put
a 4x card in my 1x slot, and now it's dead. Does anyone know of any
1x-compatible cards out there, or of something that can help me find one?

That's odd, something must have been wrong with the card to begin with since
most videocards are backwards compatible with earlier AGP standards.

Sorry, thats not true at all - The old 1x agp was 5v and now agp is 3.3v (
something like that ) and if you put an old card in, or mismatch them you
can blow them up....

However, little known is that usually agp 1x was a different connector - yes
there were 2 agp connectors, but the original one is indeed rare, so this
will add extra complication!

Try ebay...

Hi there,
I believed you are talking about AGP Specification 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0 and
not the AGP speed. As chuck has said, there shouldnt be any problems using
later AGP Specification Video Card on older AGP slot, as they are backwards
compatible. Check out this page :
http://www.ati.com/support/faq/agpchart.html

P.S. Though, there is some reports of incompatiblilty using later AGP
Specification Video Card on older motherboard, but it is a matter of getting
the video card to work or not in the first place and not damaging it.

If youre looking for a newish card for the system, you should use PCI and
get about a GeForce1 or TnT2

If it ran for 2 years it wasn't AGP 1x that killed it. But are you
_sure_ it's 1x and not 1.0? What motherboard are you using?

- Joel


It would have to be 1.0, there were no official 1x AGP boards. The
first one with AGP, the 440LX chipset, supported 1x and 2x.
