PCI to AGP Slot

  Luca M 20:57 19 Nov 2004

My friend has an old motherboad and dosent want to buy a new one to get a new AGP graphics card slot. I was wondering is there such a thing that can convert a PCI slot into an AGP slot?

what is the rest of the PC spec? and why the sudden interest in AGP if he/she has managed fine without til now?

If you supply us with some more of the PC spec we'll be able to give a better answer or supply an alternative solution.

But if it's just a straigh forward answer you want then i don't think that you can get PCI to AGP converters.

I think that it is one of the old AMD processors (a duron or a athlon). He wants the card for some of his games. I hope this is of any help. I dont know any more of the PC specs

Well in the above link the very top board should be OK for the CPU

The only option if your friend wants to use an AGP graphics card is to buy a new motherboard. Note that even if were possible to fit an AGP>PCI adaptor your graphics card would be still be restricted by the comparatively limited bandwidth of the PCI bus.

Both Nvidia & Radion make pci cards
