Specs: Windows XP
i was wondering, if you guys could tell me if i can use Sapphire HD3850 on my motherboard, or basically, my system.
System specs:
Pentium 4 3.0 GHz (HT) @ 3.0 GHz,
DDR 512 mb (2x256 mb sticks)
330v PSU
ASROCK p4i65g motherboard.

My motherboard is kind of old, but it seems i can use most of AGP cards. I had a computer problems with ex-motherboard, well it got it fried by false overclock.. So i got this one i listed above.

Thanks in advance

U have good board for socket 478 (i also own the same board). If that p4 is socket 478 then go ahead and install the components (do a benchtest first).
U have a nice video card but ram isn't enough, if u can buy 2gb (2x1gb) ddr2 400 or atleast 1gb ddr2 400.

"if u can buy 2gb (2x1gb) ddr2 400 or atleast 1gb ddr2 400"

Actually it takes DDR1 memory:

Yes 1GB Memory and a decent AGP V Card will add a little more life into your PC.

I can't believe i wrote ddr2 400, it's ddr 400. Get single 1gb of ddr 400, don't worry about running dual channel (1gb and 256mb can run dual channel).

Go to Crucial.Com and run the Scanner, then buy 2 x 512MB sticks...
