AMD 550 and Radeon 9500 - do they match?

  kiter 15:39 08 Mar 2003

A friend can't use his Saphire Radeon 9500 and has offered me to try (and buy)it.
I have an AMD Athlon 550 - is it worthwhile to have these two working together or is the card to powerful for the 550.

This is really one for the helproom, kiter but all I can say is that it's not so much the processor as the motherboard that is likely to be the issue - if you have a 550 like me , your PC is likely to be at least 2 years old and it's conceivable that the AGP slot may not take easily to the very latest cards as they can be powerful beasts - with the occasional incompatibilty, though others may be more informed so would be interested in other comments.
