How powerful are the new X1650 Graphic Processor Unit video cards? "Better check to see if you can handle it" powerful, and that's no exaggeration! Some of the new boards require PCI Express; this board lets those of us with an AGP 4x/8x slot play, too. Sapphire's 100197L is an AGP 4X/8X board that can handle all that Vista can dish out. It's based on the Radeon X1650 GPU from ATi and loaded with 256MB of GDDR2.
VGA and DVI-I ports let you hook up your choice of monitors. Or you can use both ports and give yourself plenty of screen real estate for games or large tasks. The S-Video port lets you send a HDTV/component or composite signal in addition to S-video to your TV.
