AGP HD Ready Cards?

Hi
I'm having problems as my good old trusty ati 9500 does not support DXVA which is bad as i need to enable this for xbmc playback and also i want to add a bluray player to the box later.

Another thing is the box is an AGP box so i'm wondering what is the best card to get?

I've been looking at the ATi HD 4650 AGP as it's a single slot card and should fit in my shuttle box. Are they any good? Is there a better one?

Do you know what would be the best nVidia agp card to buy? Has to be single slot tho

Re: AGP HD Ready Cards?

i didnt even know they still made agp cards, you might find no one knows much bout em since pci-e is used as the standard of today.

AFAIK For general playback, any standalone AGP card that has HD support, will play HD content back without issues.

Thanks but it's for a shuttle media center so the card can't be the same size as a truck lol

Re: AGP HD Ready Cards?

If its for movie playback, the ATI 3850 outperforms the 4600 range in almost all aspects, and you can pick them up for around the same price.

Not sure in terms of nvidia, think they dropped AGP support after the 9600 range.

Re: AGP HD Ready Cards?

Well the amazon trader has just canceled my order as he said he has non it stock (yea right he was selling em for 20 less than anywhere else i could find)

I'm glad tbh as that card drinks power (needs 2 x molex)

So looks like i'm buying the Sapphire HD 4650 AGP again as it's less power hungry on my little ideq

Re: AGP HD Ready Cards?

3850 is slightly less wattage at idle but slightly more at full load, theres not that much between the cards power consumption wise tbh, just draws from two molex's to save on stressing a single rail

Either way both cards are more than enough for what your doing, overkill really lol, have fun

Re: AGP HD Ready Cards?

Cant say for IDEQ's, but Shuttle PSU's certainly could handle a lot more than there watt rating suggested, the 200w Silent PSU's were workhorses and easily ran things way above what they should have been capable. Id expect you will be fine, your never going to be hitting anywhere near load on a media system anyway.

Got the card and fitted it last night and it works perfect and it's sped xbmc up so much.

thanks for the tip on which one to get
