Default Agp 4x

I have a motherboard that support AGP 4X. I wish to buy a new 3D card that support AGP 8X. But i not sure whether it is compatible with my motherboard that support only AGP 4X or not. Thanks

NO need to worry, sure can support but only can run 4X not 8X. Thats mean decrease a bit performance compare to run at 8X platform.

There was a question about this before, a few days ago. Yes a 8x video card will work on a 4x mother board. This is the post about this before, it will answer all of your questions.

It will be a bit slower but nothing that will be very noticable. ag3 knows what he is talking about, see his posts. What card are you thinking about buying?
