    Dont know if anyone else has discovered it but I was getting an Aero rating
    and gaming graphic rating of 1 with an AGP 8x 512mb X1950 pro.

    Not that its a whole lot but I installed the last XP driver for the card and
    ran setup in XP sp2 compatability mode and am now getting a 1.9 for Aero.

    If you find that this is the same for you please go to and go to
    their driver feedback and provide as much detail as possible. THis will help
    them look at multiple system specs to pinpoint where the issue is.

    Thanks, and good luck.
