Motherboard Question

i have a pc,which the graphics recently went to video heaven after 4 years of service,(geforce 2 mx 32mb), the mobo is a Gigabyte GA-71XE4 would this board recognise all the memory on say a geforce 4 128mb card or would i need to settle for 64mb card?,i know the mobo cant take any new fancy mx5900 or radeon,just need to know before i splash the cash!

I would say it would see the ram as the card has its own bios the card can be 2x/4x/8x AGP so u may wont to check what your board can use in that regard they should be backwards compatable but some new boards dont like the x2 option as the voltage is too high.

i know it can go on 2x the geforce2 was on 2x agp all the time no probs was just worried it wouldnt see all the ram on the graphics card wether there was a limit or not
