Default old video card for new computer??

Hey guys. i know that this will be very stupid question, but i just want to make sure. im planning to build a computer with amd 64 cpu. i have nvidia geforce 4 mx, agp, sdram i believe in my current computer, and my question is, would i be able to put it into my new computer or will i have to buy something else with ddram memory?

thank you in advance for your help and time.

You need DDR memory and not SD

However try to sell your old SD since it's over doubble the price of DDR now

as long as your new computer has an AGP slot it should work fine

The old video card would also bottleneck your computer like hell
