Default Is my video card XGP compatible?

I have a BFG Geforce FX5700 Ultra, and I was wondering if I could use it in a XGP slot. It says here that the Geforce FX5700 Ultra by Sparkle is compatible. Does that mean the one by Asylum will work, too?

Well, it says the one made by Sparkle is compatible, so I don't know if mine, which is made by BFG, will work, too.

Why have you bought a crappy motherboard that can't handle all AGP card? And why don't you go with PCI-Express instead?

is your motherboard very old? as I wonder which Northbridge doesnt support AGP that Biostar has to bring XPG.

I haven't bought one yet, but I am planning on it. Right now my card is AGP, and I don't have the money to buy a PCI-E card.
