I'm thinking of upgrading my Athlon XP 2600+ system to something like an Intel 775 at 2.8 ghz with a PCI-Express 16x slot for a high end video card. I was wondering what the current combatibility is with windows. When you install the operating system, does windows detect it as a graphics card? I have heard windows (even XP) detects it as a simple, regular, PCI-Express card, so it can't supprot any texturing from RAM, no GART, etc. If windows XP service pack 2 can detect it, what about Windows 2000? Does it have any luck with it? That is the OS I own. I was hoping someone on the forum might have installed such a card and what their experience was with it. Also, if anyone knows if it's a good time to buy it. How long will the current standard (voltage) be around? Or how long before a pci-express x32 or something.
