  1. Hi

    I gonna get a new motherboard and chip probably looking at Althlon Xp 3000+ ish and Asus Socket A mobo with 400 FSB/external clock frequency on both.

    Anyway cant really aford to get new graphics card straight away so gonna keep my Geforce 2 MX 400 which runs at either 2X or 4X AGP.

    Will my new Mobo AGP 3.0 X8 support it at probably at 133mhz and 2X or 4X instead of the top limit of 200mhz and 8X?

    Also will it run my old ram which is 266mhz DDR SDRAM at this setting rather than obviously 400mhz?

    really not sure. cheers.:)

    I m pretty sure everthing will run fine. I m pretty sure your motherboard will support a your Geforce 2 MX 400 AGP 4x card since runs on the same voltage as a typical AGP 8x would.

    Your RAM will be working fine as well but probably the one which will slow you down a bit in terms of performace.

    Other than that there's nothing much to be concern of.
