I have this mother board with a celeron in it and 1gb of ram and it takes agp. What are the chances of it take the old 2x/4x agp cards? I dont have the manual for this and I was thinking it is probably going to take 4x/8x.
If the card works at 2x/4x, and the motherborad supports 4x/8x, it will use 4x (which both support)

You can't run a 2x only card only in a 4x/8x slot
Some newer AGP motherboards do not support 4x. only 8x.
