I don't know, I also have a ATI 7500 and I have no problems what so ever. (I run both WinXP Pro and Win2K) Are the FPS the only thing that you are having problems with?

pretty much but fps are so low if makes some games unplayable and all the games were fine in win98 and I've read about other people having the same problem , and they were advised to "Roll Back your ATI driver too the pre-catalyst version" but i dont think that helped

My guess is that you have VSync enabled; disable it through the driver options (if you have already installed ATI control panel).

Hey!!!!!!

Anyway, me suggests downloading Rage3DTweak to get the most out of it, and work around with registry settings to alleviate some of the issues.

I have no idea why any of you would even consider ATI or Nvidia being better than the other. They both have their advantages and their disadvantages.

And weighing those advantages against the disadvantages is what brings people to valid preferences on card type.

Both having advantages and disadvantages does not make them equal.

Sure, you could line up any 2, one from either company, and they would never be equal. I know that but, it is truly a personal preference, and if your computer can handle it or not. Or use it to it's full potential...

What good is a ATI Radeon 9700 Pro 8x AGP in a 2xAGP slot?

The card is generally as good as the motherboard and mod it is put in to.
