    Hi,

    According to the powerspec.com link you provided, the 8350 supports an AGP 4x (AGP 2.0) slot for video. Most of the cards you can buy today are 8x cards (AGP 3.0), which are *supposed* to be backwards-compatible with the 4x interface.

    On the plus side, video cards have come down in price. I know that the GeForce FX 5200 is an 8x card that works with 4x motherboards, and it's $40. That card has 128MB DDR ram built in.

    Cheers,

    Cliff
