  1. I am looking to get a new graphics card but am uncertain as to whether my abit motherboard (KG7-Raid) will take a 8X AGP card. Is it possible to use 8x AGP in 4x AGP slot? your advice is much appreciated.

    yea but confirm it first...i was told tht my ECS M925 1.0 mobo 4X wud take an 8X card but on tryin it out, my system wudnt boot at all...i checked it out and the slot size on my mobo is not compatible i think.....all 4X mobos will not take 8X cards....its only after the 8X cards came out tht they started makin 4X mobos tht wud take 8X cards.....hell i cant even find a mention of my mobo model even on the net!!!

    AGP 1.0 = AGP1x and 2x
    AGP 2.0 = AGP2x and AGP4X
    AGP 3.0 = AGP4x and AGP8x

    Any AGP 3.0 card will work in any AGP 2.0 compliant mobo

    I've only heard of the problems firelance is talking about with early Pentium 4 boards (the 423 ones).
