  1. Hello everyone i'm a new member on the website, a few friends told me that this is the place to get some help with technical issues on hardware, ok so here it goes, i got an ATI Radeon 9600 (AGP) (pretty old yes i know), and i get screen artifacts in 3D applications or games that use 3D graphics, i tried using newer drivers, older drivers and even Omega Drivers, then i noticed that those lines appear on the loading screen too, and i realized that it was a hardware issue, however the computer doesn't crash even on extended use of 3D applications or games like in a previous thread i read. It's virtually impossible to find a new radeon 9600 or other cards equal by power to it in my country now, and if i buy a more powerfull graphics card i'd need to upgrade my whole computer hardware. Is it possible to do something about it or did the video card crap out on me completely?
    Thanx for reading :)

    Better AGP cards are still available... do some research and get a new AGP card that fits your budget

    There are a few GeForce 7800GS AGP cards on ebay right now, with worldwide shipping. Highly recommend.
