AGP x4 Max 64MB Ti4200 or better Graphics Card

My motherboard in my oldest machine has a Asus A7V266-E which is running a AMD Athlon 1.4GHz 266FSB, 512MB PC2100 DDR and WinME. It also has a AGP Pro Slot which I understand is AGP x2/x4 max.

So I am looking around for a Nvidea AGP Card x2/x4 max preferably with 64MB DDR and a Ti4200 or equivalent chippie set.

I know the FX5200 card are not as good as the TI4200 or Ti4800 but these excellent cards what I think are anyway are no longer around anywhere to buy at a sensible price and source.

Prefer not to touch Ebay. Does anyone know of a decent card which falls into the above category please. ?

x8 card will still work in a x4 mobo(backwards compatable) and you wont even notice the difference in speed.

Your shorter link doesn't seem to work right but it did take me to Dabs Graphcis/AGP card section ok.

I like the MSI FX5600 with it been AGP x8 and my slot being AGP x4 max I understand there is no benefit in having the x8 but would this damage or cause probs in anyway using the x8 on a x4 M/board ?

Thanks again for you early morning call. Hope you got some sleep today.

it will work ok just at the x4 speed(x8 is backwards compatable) shouldnt cause any problems for you.

Not if the AGP port uses 3.3V signaling it isnt.
