Also i bought another agp card about a week ago(geforce2 mx 400 64mb sdr 4x) and when i inserted the card it tells me that is not supported. why? Is there a difference between a ddr and a sdram as far as the graphics card? Anyway i only have 16mb of video memory and i need at least 64mb for my kids to play wizard 101.
