    Working on an older computer and would like to see if someone has a low end PCI card they wouldnt mind selling me cheap, like lunch + shipping costs.

    According to toastem2004 the cards I am looking for are: nvidia 6 series or higher / ati 9500 or higher

    HEAT is in sig as well as my Videogame FS thread. Would def work out a trade if possible.

    Sorry to thread jack but if someone has a second one of these, then I'll be "next in line".

    Thanks,

    Any idea if that card would run under Win7/Vista? I think it might be too old :laugh: Im going to research it a bit more.

    I have a couple PCI cards in my sig. No idea about Vista/7 support. Not sure if they even work but I could test them if you'd like. I really have no idea what they are worth so prices aren't firm.

    From what I could find they are all too old (both Bill's and Maban's) :ohwell: I think the oldest I can go is a Nvidia 6100 type card or ATI 9 series.

    Thats what I was thinking, but good old Google shows 6 series PCI cards exist :laugh:

    There are plenty of PCI cards still in production today, it will recognize it just fine :D

    :nutkick: of course it does pci isn't dead it just has limited uses


    anyway win7 will work with almost any card the problem lies with direct x support on these old cards being to low, at best you might be able to set your resolution properly and use the basic scheme.


    i would look for a x1300/1550 there where also some low end low profile pci 8/9 series cards by nvidia that might work fully featured win7

    Id like to stay away from eBay, but thanks :toast:

    That would be perfect, have any? :D

    Interesting info. If I can find this Vista disc I would try installing it and seeing what happens, but no dice so far. I'd like Areo to work, but if classic works without issues I could settle and use the IGP. Thanks!

    you'll need at least a nvidia 6 series or higher / ati 9500 or higher. The 9250 is DX8 and will just give u "standard vga" driver. The min requirement is DX9, and even though the nvidia fx (5 series) is dx9, no support in vista/7. In my shop here, we have an Athlon MP 1800+ w/ an ati 9600xt in it. Aero runs and surprising is quite smooth with the effects.
