GeForce FX 5200 (AGP 8x)

Here's the problem: My GFX card is nVidia GeForce FX 5200; AGP 8x; 128 MB.


In System Profiler, it reads:


GeForce FX 5200:

 Chipset Model:	GeForce FX 5200
 Type:	Display
* Bus:	PCI	   <<<<<<<
 VRAM (Total):	128 MB
 Vendor:	NVIDIA (0x10de)
 Device ID:	0x0322
 Revision ID:	0x00a1
DELL D1028L:
 Resolution:	1280 x 960 @ 60 Hz
 Depth:	32-bit Color
 Core Image:	Supported
 Main Display:	Yes
 Mirror:	Off
 Online:	Yes
 Quartz Extreme:	Supported
 Status:	No display connected


As you can see, the bus was recognized as PCI; this will greatly decrease the performance of games, or won't it?


Is there anyway i can get it recognized as AGP 8x?


PS: I used the nVidia driver created by diabolik (diabolik1605.com/DHF/iNVidia.html)


Thank you

My motherboard is Foxconn (http://www.foxconnchannel.com/EN-US/Product/motherboard_detail.aspx?ID=en-gb0000173) and i've successfully updated my bios.I tried AGPGart v1.1, but nothing seemed to happen at all. :(
Change IONameMatch / 0 - pci10de,e2 to IONameMatch / 0 - pciclass,060400 in Info.plist of AGPGart.kext
Lately i've tried AGPGart v1.2 and nothing seemed to happen too.I've changed aperture size in bios to 128 MB. Didn't work out either.Any ideas? :D

It should work :P

Repair permissions:

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AGPGart*

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AGPGart*

and delete Extensions Cach
