Hello Everyone setting up an old computer, well computers at home, its for XP gaming on some games that simply don't work on my main desktop, as well as for my lan party next weekend. But thats another topic all together, what I'm looking for is for the old system I will use personally for my own fun, but I need the AGP X850 XT VIVO bios, if anyone has one please let me know, I'm going to turn my AGP X850Pro VIVO into the XT, as my card is Sapphire and every source I've read said this will work, problem is the old links to the downloads from 04 are dead. IF anyone has a valid link or the bios and can toss it up I'd be greatful.

TechPowerup has a database of old VBIOS files. But remember just because Sapphire didn't laser cut the pixel pipes doesn't mean it will work.

This thread makes me smile. I can't believe an X850XT PLATINUM EDITION is $20 dollars on Ebay. It's not even worth that, but I can remember when it was the biggest thing around, was crazy expensive, ran so, so, hot. Oh man.

That was also when we had fifty thousand versions of the same card. Goodness. X800. X800Pro. X800XT. X800XL. There was some other card in there. Then came the X850's and ah. Nostalgia


Have fun with your card! The only X800 I ever owned was one I got from a friend--an X800 crossfire edition. It performed pretty well, but then again, I was upgrading from a 9800Pro.
