Does My Graphics card needs upgrading?

I am having trouble with the BTSport streaming video. (Picture and sound distorted on full screen.)

Broadband and Monitor OK.

Microsoft XP. - Ageing PC copes with other sites.

I am thinking that the Graphics card needs upgrading. (NVIDIA GEForce 4 MX440)

Would the Forum agree that this would improve the situation?

If so, which card? Not too "High end", as I am not a "gamer" and the PC may not last too long.

Think I've just thrown out one of those must be twenty years old?

Motherboard is V400DB,chipset is Via KT400. 10 - 15years old.

But this hasn't answered my questions.

Is AGP still used?

Is AGP still used?

I see many VIDIA AGP cards on Ebay.

Would all/any of them work?

2002 Surprised at that - had that card in my previous machine and have had this one since early 2005

Yes, I have the "hard Copy" manual.

Yes, I have the "hard Copy" manual. Says that AGP slot supports 2X/4X/8X cards

My NVIDIA GEForce 4 MX440 is 8X already.

Will this limit my choice?

Disappointing. Apart from a trip down memory lane, no technical help. DGB

>What sort of technical help were you looking for?<

Answers to the questions posed I in the first post.

If you are only having problems with BTsports replacing the graphics card may not solve this problem. It could be a problem with add-ons used with your web browser. It could also be the web browser you are using have you tried another browser.

I think Stoneywood needs to find himself another forum... Probably already has. Shame, really... :-)
