AGP 8x cards will run in 4x motherboards, just not as fast

but don't try and run an 8x card in a 2x slot

AGP 6600GT's wont have a peformance difference on AGP 4x vs 8x popular to contrary belief, I tested this in benchmarks and in game peformance.

6600GT is your best bet

get a evga or leadtek 6600gt. a 4x agp slot won't affect your performance much.

Wow, I can say that the x700 Pro beats the 6600GT at cs source easily. Please provide a full picture, not just one game you decided to pick out because it favors a particilar graphics card. By the way, this review basically sums up what you have to know.
