Default is agp 4x any good for gaming.

just wondering if agp 4x is a good slot for gaming. i have never heard of this slot for gaming before. here is the reason why.

rite now both boards are at 15 bucks. i plan to get a xeon for gaming, being that they are rather cheap and i can get two of them on one board. but i have never heard of that agp 4x by itself. i have only saw it with agp 8x. what is this 4x and what kind of cards does it use. also what is a vrm slot. thanks alot.

Xeons are terrible for gaming. Xeon's are server processors, you'll commonly see them in server stacks. If its Intel you want for gaming, get a Pentium 4. If you go the AMD route, than the Athlon 64's, 64 X2's, or Opterons (for overclocking) would be good. and if you make a gaming PC, do what PZEROFGH said: use PCI-Express.
