Default Help with AGP 4x

Guys, I don't know if anyone here remembers, but I'm building my lady a computer with some components I found really cheap. I found a mobo for 5 bucks, processor for 50, video card was retail though. The hard drives were a dollar a piece. Anyway, you get the picture.

Does anyone have any experience with a motherboard with an AGP 4x slot? I repeat, it does not have 8x capabilities.

Now the pretty little lady has an MX4000 for the slot, but I really don't think that'll be enough for her gaming she's going to do. We're gonna get her a copy of Age of Empires III next week.

I need to get some opinions. What's the best card you all think I can get that won't choke too bad on a 4x slot? I was sortof thinking somewhere around a 6200. I really have no idea, as I've never dealt with a 4x slot. Thanks in advance.

Ryan

AGP 4x and 8x are backwards compatable and AGP4x will only possibly be a bottleneck in a high end video card
