This is a noob question but I dunno so I'ma ask it. If you have an 8X AGP card, but a 4X AGP Board, will it work?
Also, this goes right along with this question. I'm building a PC for my roommate and I had him get a ASUS P4S800D-X board, and an Intel 2.4GHZ Socket 478 533FSB chip. This is where I run into the problem, the board supports HT, but the cpu isn't a HT chip, so when I assembled it all it naturally didn't work. Is the fact that it's a HT board and a non-HT chip my problem? When I hit the power button fans come on, but nothing else happens, no sounds, none of that crap.
The thing is I kinda want a quick fix so he will stop using my computer! and there's a board at the local CompUSA that supports 4X, the ASUS board I have atm supports 8X AGP, but like I say, it's not working.
Sorry, I kinda rambled all over the place but there you go, help please!
