what i really want to tell u is that a modern x server runs quiet smooth with x1650 series. I'm experiencing a little slow down when opening windows but when it draws it draws fast. Videos? Well played! it feels like almost the edge between the good and the evil. it is not so expensive and i think it should be available used, agp thats what u want!

p.s. slow drivers? seriously?
