Lightbulb A7N8X Deluxe with a ATI 9500 Pro

Has anyone gotten a 9500 pro working with a nforce2 chipset board?

AFAIK, it won't work, ever, unless nVidia releases a special AGPGART module supporting the nForce2, or AGPGART reverse engineers the support.

In other words, you are SOL if neither of those things happens.

Unhappy What never !

What does this mean, no 3d support or no video support for ATI cards ?

Can I use my ATI 7500 with X and just not use the DRI stuff/3d accel ?

I'm using the radeon driver from XFree86 and X does work. I just don't have 3d acceleration. XVideo extensio does not appear to work either.
