I am Thinking of purchasing a radeon 256mb 9600xt for my pc, (spec: amd athlon xp 2000+, 512 DDR 120gig ect but it only has 4x agp on the m'board) i am going to upgrade the m'board and cpu but not quite yet, for the meanwhile will an 8 x agp card work in a 4 x agp slot ( i think ive heard that they do but only at the 4 x standard) is this true??
Theres not really much of a big noticeable difference between 8x & 4x anyways. And yeah like mentioned before the card can run on your motherboard but only limited at the maximum 4x it can support. Do you know what motherboard model you have cause depending on some circumstances there may be some compatiblity problems.
