Advice on graphics card and agp8x

  1. I want to buy a new graphics card, and i am interested in the ABIT RADEON R9600XT-VIO . motivated by the fact i brought battlefield 2 knowingly though only haveing a 64mb card Geforce4 mx 440. i am not familur with all the jargon that goes with it and was wondring if this card would be ok to install in my pc.

    Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519)
    Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
    System Manufacturer: Packard Bell NEC
    System Model: 00000000000000000000000
    BIOS: Default System BIOS
    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
    Memory: 512MB RAM
    Page File: 246MB used, 376MB available
    Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS
    DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
    DX Setup Parameters: Not found
    DxDiag Version: 5.03.2600.2180 32bit Unicode

    the current card i have is apg4x and the new one i want is Agp8x so i take it that the apg slot is designated on my pc for cards at agp 4x . as i say i am not familur with it all and dont understand it fully so will this affect the performance of the new card or wont it work at all or what?

    It says lots of useful pc info.

    Most agp 4x slots support agp cards that are agp 8x/4x compatible.
