This was supposed to be a AGP video card, but it doesn't fit in my AGP slot.
Here's another blurry picture of my card.
looks fuzzy, but still looks like an AGP:
I'm having signal loss problems with my X1300 pro card, so my box is open right now, I'm pretty sure, that's not AGP. I have AGP, it doesn't look like that.
From right to Left of the picture....
The nub, on the right, on mine is next to a short piece of bus, then the long piece.
Here's another way to look at it.
Left to right, staring at the ATI Fan, lets call it the front of the card. .
CONNECTORSTART, LOOOOONG,GAP1,SHORT, CONNECTOREND,Nub.
CONNECTORSTART - is the start of the MOBO slot connector.
CONNECTOREND - is the end of the MOBO slot connector.
also, keep in mind there is a different type of slot for each type of AGP.
Actually I thinks it's PCI-E, look at your second link. There's a topo picture of the bus. (Third picture down)
SHORT, LONG, NUB.
Where as the second picture, is
LONG, Short, NUB.
I'm running AGP x8. I think the mode changes, I don't think the slot does.
Yeah, it's PCI-E. Thanks.
there are actually different slots:
The AGP cards I'm looking at on the internet have 3 medium size contact points, each separated by a space. (contact point, space, contact point, space, contact point) My AGP slots have a medium size slot, a space, and then a long slot. Is that the way they're supposed to be? It looks like it might fit, but I'm wondering why there's an extra space in the AGP video card that doesn't match my slot.
