Pardon the stupid question, but I'm having a hard time trying to find the answer in previous posts.  I have an AGP ATI Radeon 9200 series card from 2006 or so, I guess you can call it "legacy".   From what I've seen, it doesn't look like ANY of the miners utilize AGP cards at all.  To me, as a person that doesn't want to fork out $200 or so bucks for OpenCL, but has something that could perform better than a cpu miner, it seems a shame that AGP can't be used in this endeavor.    The AMD website made it seem like if you downloaded the SDK I could get a legacy card to recognize OpenCL, but it didn't seem to work.  Are AGP cards dinosaurs?

Better than mining with a slide rule, but yeah...AGP is no longer "advanced"...should change it to OGP.

If you haven't started mining yet, don't. Just invest...

I don't think a card that old supports OpenCL.

Impress your friends! Buy a bitcoin keychain!

I have a card of a similar age to that and, after looking around a bit, I've come to the sad conclusion that we're out of luck. I'm not sure mining is cost-effective any more though, so it doesn't really matter.

You don`t have to spend a lot of money on a new graphic card,but unfortunately you have to upgrade your whole computer...
You have to buy a new motherboard that supports PCI-Ex,CPU and even a new PSU...
