Thread: agp or pci ?

  1. #1
    ok so i orderd this ati radeon x1600 pro graphics card that is supose to host either a 4x or 8x agp but the only thing that makes me worry is that the image of the card from the company does not look like it will fit in an agp slot
    i normally wouldnt woory but i already had to send a pci express card back with a $27.00 restocking fee and dont want to have to pay another 1 if anyone can tell me it looks like an agp card id rest a little easier until it got here

    Did your PC come with a user manual?

    Damn, just take the extra time to read the description. That is definitely PCI-Express.

    You shouldnt have to, power supply connectors havent changed, white connector with four holes in it, should have a few spare hunging around inside your case.

    About whether the card will fit, you could always buy a new/upgrade your motherboard .

    I would go with AGP since it's dedicated for video. But if your board comes with a PCI Xpress x16, go with that. But AGP surely over regular PCI.
