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?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

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...
