    The difference between putting the card in an 4x slot than a 8x slot is minimal you wont see much of an increase in performance by using 8x slot with the card you have.

    agreed with above there is virtually no performance difference between the two.

    A friend and I actually did an experiment to see if there was a difference. We found none, and we wasted a whole afternoon.

    But when I turn the AGP slot from 4x to off mode I lose 100 plus in 3DMark 03
    so what's your opinion ?
    BTW: my card get 2219 point with 1024x768 32bit, AGP 4x
