View Full Version : GeForce2 MX400 Questions
11-23-2001, 09:23 PM
I am looking at buying a GeForce2 MX400 video card(64Mb). Is this graphics card primarily for PCI slots? If my motherboard has an ISA port, what should I do? That's basically what I am unclear about. I keep reading that this card is PCI and I am used to putting a video card in the ISA slot. Also, are these cards able to be overclocked? Sometimes I may play a game that is pretty demanding as far as video performance goes and I also like to watch DVD's on my computer. Do you think this card would be well suited for this? Thanks for any help and suggestions.
GeForce2 MX400's mainly come in AGP versions.
Yes, they are able to overclock.
"If my motherboard has an ISA port, what should I do?" It may be used for an isa bus NIC or modem.
Putting a videocard in a pci or agp slot is not much different than putting it in an isa slot.
Its been years since I used an isa bus videocard.
Does your motherboard have an AGP slot? If not, using that videocard with a slow cpu means you won't get as much out of the videocard as you should. Game playing and DVD watching won't be all that nice. And it may be time for a motherboard upgrade. But then again that would likely mean buying a new cpu and ram.

Whoops, I got my computer terms mixed around:( ISA ports are the long black ones that went down near the pci slots which are short and white. And the AGP port is the short brown one near the top row of PCI slots, correct? I was thinking of the AGP port when I posted, but called the AGP port and ISA... It certainly would run slow if it were in the ISA slot;) Thanks for the info sbp.
