i recently bought an asus P4P800s motherboard and celeron 2.6ghz cpu, and i already had a powercolor Radeon 9600ProEZ video card.

my problem is that i got the newest video drivers, and from catalyst 3.9 to 4.5 , all updates cause it to stop running at any agp speed, 4x or 8x, which i tell you, is EXTREMELY sluggish:mad: . i am now in the market for a new motherboard to remedy the problem, and any suggestions to which i should look at would be appreciated.:bows: i am currently downloading the Omega tweaked Ati drivers to make certain the problem is with my mobo, not the videocard.

my bios for my asus mobo was set at 64megs, even tho the card i had in it was a 128 meg card, once i changed it, it made a world of difference BTW, where are you goin to get the omega tweaked drivers?

that setting has nothing to do with AGP bus setting, he needs to see if his BIOS has the support to change the AGP bus multiplier from 2x 4x or 8x.

The problem is the Celeron. You need to get the P4.

Thx all, you get the omega drivers fromm www.omegacorner.com, any ways i did fix my prob, and it was part of WinXP that was stopping a management driver being installed properly, so now it all works just fine, after i found a way to force install it. damn, that mobo IS expensive, plus, i havent seen it advertised anywhere down here in Australia!
