I have, admittedly, an 'old' system, EPOX MB with AMD K6-2 500mhz processor, 128mb ram, and used to have a Voodoo 3000 video card with 16mb ram, AGP. I am upgrading in the near future but am puzzled by the lack of performance of the new ATI Radeon VE 32mb DDR AGP video card I put in. I thought it would pick up the frame rate a little in some games I play (Nascar Heat the main one), but the opposite happened; frame rates now suck and the game crashes (reloaded it from scratch to insure it didn't think the Voodoo was still there). Plus, I tried some other games that ran fine with the Voodoo but now they are not even playable with the Radeon. Also, when I go to Direct X (I have 8.0) the AGP texture test button is grayed out, like I don't have an AGP card, which I do. It was like that with the Voodoo but I know they are not true AGP cards. My MB has a VIA chipset and I downloaded and installed the latest VIA 4 in 1 drivers. Have latest Radeon drivers installed to. Just wondering what is going on and how to maybe solve it.
