Drivers for 2600XT

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, my dad just picked me up a Visiontek 2600 XT AGP for $30 at Bestbuy (hooray for clearance/employee discount). So, knowing that all drivers included on CDs are usually a few revisions out of date, I would go to AMD's site before I installed everything to get the newest driver. However, ATI doesn't have a distinct driver for AGP, it only says PCIe. Anybody know if this driver works?

This gives details on how to tweak the drivers for AGP

Say goodbye to old games and any software that dont force AA or AF in their menus, for some weird reason some older games work well, others dont..., but for 30$ you cant beat that deal!!

Hmm... Running into a bit of a standstill here. First I went to Visiontek's site, and they had a download for a driver for the AGP version. It was just uploaded on Friday, and supposedly is the latest version. However, after installing, it wasn't working quite right. I've only tried 3DMark03 (what I had installed at the time), and also AOE III, but 3DM refused to load, and AOE III would load but the image was all screwed up. So, I ran Driver Cleaner again and just for the hell of it tried to install the drivers on the CD (version 7.1 or somewhere around there). Same issue.

Sorry for double post, but tried re-installing the drivers. Still no go. AOE III with settings on dead max is stunning and quite smooth, but there's still a ton of errors on screen. Attaching a pic to show what I mean.

Hmm... Finally got 3D games to work properly. However, 3DMark still freezes on loading, and for some reason AOE III thinks that my card has no VRAM.
