Could someone please ban this moron?
it's being taken care of

Anyway, I don't know about getting the FX cards as my old ASUS board was only AGP 4x and when I tried putting in the FX card it made my system freeze, so I needed a whole new motherboard to buy...... So really I don't know about AGP 2x..

a 5200 in that?? whats the point?!?! hes not going to be able to do anything with that then he would with a TNT2 cause his system is such a bottlenecker...

trust me.. go to ebay (or somewhere else) and get a tnt2 pro or a geforce 2 mx400 (even those are overkills in your system)... i used to have a tnt2 pro (up to 3 months ago ) and it was one hell of a card

Yea, i can't believe somebody suggested an FX 5700! That would be a total waste for your system ATI. Get one of those ones that quartz01 suggested.

......Oh.... :amazed: OK-well, that's scary! could you imagine if i tried to put an AGP 4x into a 2x then? it might EXPLODE!! lol Hmm... I'll just go with the old TNT2 Pro like Quartz01 said, and see what happens. THANKS!

agp speed is always backward compatible its the voltage that matters.the older 2x agp 1.00 cards dont use the correct voltage to function in the 1.5 volt agp slots , but a 1.5 volt agp card should work with older 2x agp 1.0 slots
