It will work like the others have said, it will just drop the card down to 4X. Thats what happened to my FX5600 when i put it in my old moboiamroot said:I have a motherboard with an AGP 4X slot and i'm interested in buying a new graphics card but i see that all of the latest cards are all AGP 8X. I would like to know if an 8x card can be used with my 4x motherboard.
Right,last i heard nothing need 8x.Lord Kalthorn said:Yeah, it would, but probably best to buy an AGP 4x which would be cheaper. You won't notice any difference because the Computer won't take it anyway.
They don't - but they will. And buying this now may mean that you can use it in another MOotherboard later on - but still? A 4x is cheaper than a 8x and you'll never be able to use that 8x with the motherboard you have anyway. So why bother?bluto said:Right,last i heard nothing need 8x.
This also requires an 8x capeable Motherboard anyway.
Stand pat till your sure.
