You have to find out what speed the mother board is, if it is less than 8x than you will notice a decrease in the performace compared to a mb with 8x agp slot. You might be able to get away with a 4x agp but if you go lower its not worth it to upgrade. If your mb is 2x agp than it might be better to upgrade your mb, which means you would be buying a whole new pc.

If your mb is 2x or 4x it will bottle neck your system.

It would help to know what the speed of your agp slot is, than we can help you decide what you have to do next.
