Default MotherBoard Support Graphics Cards


I'm wondering if anyone here can help me or have had this problem or know where to find out, i've checked ASUS website and they have almost no help.

I'm wondering if this motherboard thats in my HP Pavilion XT878, will work with a new graphics card that i want to get on newegg. Please help. Also the NVIDIA TNT/TNT2 Pro graphics card i have in now is a 4X AGP card so i do have a 4X AGP Drive. Plz Help!

Your mobo has an AGP x4 slot. That card will work, but only at the x4 level.

It'll work, yeah. Not at it's full 8x speed but just at 4x which isn't a huge deal.
