Can anyone help me with this....
I downloaded belarc advisor and it tells me my mobo is an intel se440bx-3 AA722396-106
On the crucial site i followed the links and it says my mobo does not support AGP?????????
So how come dell says my pc has an AGP card (16mb nvidia tnt by diamond) and also in my bios its set to AGP.
Is belarc wrong or are there more types of mobo than listed on the crucial site?
Basically i want to know ....will a geforce 4 64mb mx440 card fit my mobo and will it work well with a P3 450mhz chip and 448mb SDRAM

powerless do you know if a geforce 4 will fit my mobo?? I've had some conflicting advice

and also is there much difference between a geforce 2 mx400 64mb card ..... and a geforce 4 mx440 64mb card

An AGP slot is an AGP slot.

There is...





The card you will be using will be an 4X card.

I can not say for certain that card will work in your motherboard. Unless anyone else has the card and motherboard, that can confirm that the two work together?

Your best bet is to buy the card, pop it in and see if it works. But make sure you can get a refund in case it cannot.

Performance wise the geforce 4 is far superior to the geforce 2.
