I'm toying with the idea of running a 440BX board I recently acquired for a few different things but I can't seem to find much information about what graphics cards are known to handle the 89Mhz AGP clock which results from using a 133Mhz FSB on these boards.
I've read that "older Geforces" can work, but I don't know what that means exactly. I saw another thread here where someone had problems with a several Geforce 4 Ti cards, but a Ti 4800 worked fine.
I'm sure there are lots of people here who have tested or used similar setups, so... what video cards did you guys use, and with what result?
My last resort is to simply use my Geforce 6200 256MB PCI card, since it'll likely work fine for most things, but I'd prefer to use the AGP slot for a bit more speed and to free up PCI slots.
I have several cards available, just not a lot of time to test them all. I have an AGP FX 5950 Ultra and a 6800 GT, a bunch of Geforce 4 Ti cards, Geforce 3 Ti 200, lots of Geforce 2\4 MX series... strange as it is, I have nothing from the Geforce 256 or 2 (non-MX) lines, but I have several cards older than that as well. I also have a Voodoo 5 5500 AGP (and PCI for that matter) but I'd rather not do anything weird with that. My ideal card would be something that would offer great compatibility for anything I might want to throw at it (from late DOS to early 2000s games). Windows 98SE is the most likely operating system, though I'll probably dual boot XP at some point.
Now for some blitting from the back buffer.
