Default Re: Vista will be like AGP for some, even with Windows 7, here is why.....

Another jealous lowly PCI-E user in denial of the DOMINANCE.

Important to note: If any SUPERIOR APG users are out there, to install an ATI series AGP card in windows 7 you must download the Vista 9.10 AGP hotfix drivers to your computer & extract them to a directory. Then, install the driver directly from device manager using the ATI directory and you're all set.
LOLZ. Every benchmark I've seen puts the 3850 slightly BEHINDthe 8800gtx. I don't think the Windows 7 video experience rating can be considered a thorough accurate. benchmark. If it were, we should be using that to review video cards....
