Default Noob Video Card Question

Does an 4x AGP video card work on a 8x AGP slot?

nope hahah just kidding, it depends on the voltage, some 8X slots only support the 1.5V standard, and if the card is a 3.3V 4X card, you will fry your MOBO as it will pull more voltage than the slot can handle, good info to have, just thought you might want to check into that
