Question Compatibility Question

Is my motherboard "L4VXA2" compatible with an ATI Radeon 256mb x800 PCI-E and/or AGP graphics card?

I think it is but Im not totally sure, in the manual for my motherboard under "Expansion Options" it says it has "Five 32-bit PCI Slots" and "One 8x AGP slot", but under "Chipset" it says, "Support for an 2x/4x/8x AGP interface providing vivid 3d graphics and video performance."

Currently I have an ATI Radeon 9800SE 128mb AGP card in there.

your board cannot run pci express cards only agp cards.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

That board has 5 PCI slots and 1 AGP x8 slot.

If your gaming go with the 7800GS, if you want to do decent gaming go with the X1600PRO.
