i have a mother asus p4pe motherboard that has 4 times agp, and a fx5600 graphics card. i want to upgrade my graphices card to a radeon 9800 so i can play far cry better. would i be losing out alot because my motherboard is only 4 times agp? should i buy a new motherbaord thats 8 times agp? how do i get a times sign on my keyboard? cheers.

Don't know about the first question, but what's wrong with letter x (eg 3 x 2 = 7!!)

9800 Pro fine with AGP x4 my mobo supports x8 running my 9800Pro Artic Cooler

you will not see any difference between 8x and 4x, it is only a very small inprovement. you will need a pro version of the 9800 to see a big improvement in speed.
