A8V Graphics Card

I tried upgrading my graphics card to a Radeon HD 2600XT AGP and the
printing to the display was corrupt. For example, if I tried scrolling a
web page quickly, the writing would smear.

To my dismay, the drivers are not windows qualified either.

I looked at the comments on newegg for the agp video cards, and basically,
they all seem to suck, drivers are bad, etc.

I tried the original drivers on the cd, the updated drivers from visiontek,
the hotfix drivers, but the results are the same, the writing will smear
when scrolling a page quickly.

Is anyone using a stable agp card with their a8v?

My specs are:

win xp
amd x2 4400
2 gig ram

I have a little more info:

1. I downloaded the latest ATI CCC, version 8.x, which is XP certified. I
tried the card again but got the same results, artifacts on the screen, text

2. I also checked the power, my power supply is 500W. With my old card, my
computer pulls about 140 watts, with the 2600XT, my computer pulled about
160 watts.

I guess my main question is, of those that have an A8V, what is the fastest
video card that runs reliably on it?
