    AGP adapter

    While browsing around the Device Manager. I checked into the Display tab and on my adapter ( which is a NVidia GeForce FX 5200, 4x/8x AGP ) card. It showed everything working OK with no problems. However, when I looked at the properties for this card,it showed that the Location was PCI Bus 1, Device 0, function 0.

    This is an AGP card and is in the AGP slot on the MB, which supports up tp AGP 4x. The chipset is an Intel 845 and has the Intel Accelerated adapter software enabled. All drivers for the card and chipset are up to date with latest versions. I don't see anywhere in the BIOS where AGP would be enableddisabled.

    Shouldn't the location show as AGP slot 1 or something like that, not PCI slot 1?

    Video seems to be working OK and dxdiag 9.0 installed and shows no problems.

    Am I chasing a dead horse or what? <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30>

    Re: AGP adapter

    Mine is too. Read this Here

    Also found this at Expert Exchange
    1 way of determining if the Card is an AGP or PCI card would be to check the properties of the Display Adapter in the Device Manager.
    >>>If you see this kind of line:--
    "PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0"
    then the card's an AGP Card,

    >>>If its something like this:--
    "PCI Slot 5 (PCI bus 2, device 2, function 0)"
    i.e. the PCI Slot number is indicated, then the card's a PCI card.

    This explains it even better AGP vs PCI Its all in the card and Texturing, but as you will read it uses the PCI BUS. Very informative article.

    Cowboy,

    Good info.
    So it looks like I am really beating a dead horse here, since my card shows up in the right way. I think I may mess around with the latency settings anyway. I do think I should be seeing better results with this new FX chipset card tho.
