...But what's so great about ForceWare 84.21 versus the original Detonator 56.73 that came with Windows XP Professional (SP2)?? (Well, besides the nVidia controls that allow for rather extreme customization of many parameters of the graphics card.)

I'm lost. :confused:

the support for that card is long gone, new drivers pretty much update the newest hardware etc. i remember sayin the same thing back wen i had a 5900XT, n thats alot newer then the Ti

Here's another question: what happens if I replace my Gainward AGP card with another recent graphics card that uses the nVidia GeForce MX4000 chipset? Will the pre-installed ForceWare driver reconfigure itself for this chipset? :confused:

You'd be taking a step backwards with the mx4000 chipset,grab up a 6600 or a 6800 while they are a few left.(nana2)

Is nVidia phasing out the 6600 chipset? :confused: Maybe they'll come out with die-shrinked low-power consumption version soon. :)

We all know that AGP is going away but there are too many more recent motherboards out there with AGP 4x/8x slots. :)

More recent motherboards with AGP slot!!!
Give me one !

The last chip with AGP support for AMD cpus where the KT880pro and the nforce3 chips, these are like 2 years old !
I doubt there are motherboards makers that still produce these mobos, any way your best chance for AGP card are not too muc limited but you'll pay a little more than it's PCI-E brother.

Good luck.
