I am planning on buying an MSI m/board and the AGP specs ae as follows "One AGP 4x slot (1.5v only)". Can I use a Prolink Gforce FX5600 256Mb DDR (8x AGP I think)with it?

If it works it will only work at 4AGP What?s the point of upgrading a motherboard to 4AGP and putting a 8AGP card in it. Falls economy

so basically with a 4x agp slot, 4x is the maximum speed you can run ?
