    So tomorrow I go shopping for a new motherboard and and new PCU. As I feel I have to make use of the new 4650, I'm aiming at a Asrock 4coredual MB, coz it have both AGP and PCIE slots.

    Do yourself a hugue favor ditch all AGP stuff you have. AGP is broken all over the place. AGP was never properly implemented, all bridge have bugs and all bugs are different. Sadly sales people in AMD thought it would be good to keep selling AGP and pretend they support it, i am pretty sure driver people in AMD doesn't bother about AGP.

    So for peace in world and to improve your karma please ditch AGP.

      Yes, maybe it's broken, even more if you're using Mesa drivers (which is not the case of this guy)...

      I've the same card as him and I've it working properly in an Arch i686 (with Catalyst 10.12) installation + an Intel P4 overclocked at 3.6GHz + an Asus P4C800-Deluxe mobo. Maybe his problem is more related to the hardware configuration than software...
      (Also, on Windows XP (this computer is also a dual-boot machine), I've the Standard Asus drivers that were provided by the CD, and so far, no problems)...

      Cheers and Merry Xmas!
