1st card is either a radeon 9500 or radeon 9700. There's no way that's an X800 card. The card uses a FDD power connector. Here' […]wrote:
First up. We have a x800 Pro AGP that was listed for 7 dollars non working. The seller said he wasn't sure if he had the right aux power. and tbh im confused as to what connector is on it. It looks like a PCI-E 6 pin connector with the top broken off on a AGP card. Weird. Anybody able to identify this? My hopes are that the seller didn't correctly hook in the aux power leading to "him not being able to get it to turn on and show video". I actually can't find another card with the same capacitor arrangement either. Looks like it might have been modded? idk

Here's a couple of 9700 cards from my collection:
And here's what an X800/x850 looks like:wrote:
and then we have some form of TNT2 Pro. Just a step below ultra and will do nicely until i get my hands on one. I mainly wanted this for some tests (A friend told me alot of DirectX6 cards don't render the walls in Jedi Knight 2 when in binoc's xD)
2nd card looks like a Compaq Riva TNT2 Ultra but if you look closely it reads CT5826 at the top of the card (at least that's what I can make out). It's definitely a Creative card, but it's a 16mb PRO model made for Gateway. They are passively cooled. Great card, but I would not run it w/o a fan - it gets hotter the a V3 3000. If it actually reads CT5823, then I'm mistaking and it's a Compaq TNT2 ultra.wrote:
and then we have an EVGA TNT2 Vanta with a modded cooling assembly (Im hoping for a decent OC out of it. If that fails I'll probably relocate that cooler onto the TNT2 Pro or another card)
this card looks like a Riva TNT2 M64. I doubt evga made anything like that but I could be wrong. EVGA usually made higher end stuff back in the day. Vanta cards are usually fanless and have a tiny heatsink on top of the GPU - about half the one on the TNT2. Some didn't even have a heatsink. -> http://www.vgamuseum.info/images/vlask/nvidia/vantaltfb.jpg
There was another picture of the back and the label very clearly said "x800 pro". Maybe it's a 9800 Pro?
