Default question

i have a A7V8X-LA (Kamet 2) mother board, would it be better to get a 9800PRO with a AGP 4x/8x or a 9800PRO with AGP 8x? which one would work?

Any AGP card should work in any AGP slot, so either will be fine. The AGP8x might be better but i don't think there'd be a difference.

They'll both work, and there shouldn't be a difference, but just in case there is, look into getting the 8x.

All cards that are AGP 8x will work in AGP 4x slots.

I would guess that if the core and memory clocks are the same between the two cards, there would be no difference (like the others said).
