Windows 7.0/ATI Radeon x1300

    Question

  • Greetings!

    I just upgraded from MS Windows Vista to the 32-bit 7.0 and love the new look, performance, etc. I also purchased an ATI Radeon x1300 graphics card from Dell. (I have a Dimension 9200, 3GB of memory w/ an Intel 1.87 GHz). I am reluctant to install the graphics card after reading posts about compatibility issues.

    Would you recommend that I return the Radeon product and purchase another graphics accelerator that is more compatible with 7.0 or install it and manually resolve any issues? Or what steps should I take before installing it?

    Thanks. I have another misc. question: although Windows Upgrade advisor said I could install the 64-bit version, when I tried to run the DVD, I received an error message that my system isn't able to. Any suggestions?

    Many thanks,
    Kim

  • Hi, I looked and could not find W7 drivers for it. 

    Yes it would be a good idea to bring ATI Radeon x1300 graphics card back and get another Graphics card, check to see if it has W7 drivers.

    Download Cpuz it will get details about your CPU http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php   ( CPU-Z 1.52 Setup )
