    if your old graphic card is AGP, then youll be fine. BTW, what GFX card do you have? *edit* and if the mobo specs say it supports AGP, then im pretty sure they mean it. I dont think they wrote the specs as a joke.

    As long as your cards 4 x mate it'll be ok.The older cards may not because they're a lower voltage.

    On the motherboard spec it say "Slots: 1x AGP 8X/4X" What does that mean....does it support 8x or 4x, cuz i know for sure that 1 slot can't support both 8x and 4x. 8x and 4x slot are built differently. That is why i'm asking to see if anyone know what the spec mean by 8x/4x and if my old 4x will be support by it.

    so it doesn't support 4x....then what the point of the 4x/8x AGP support thing.

    sry... but you are ignorant. 4x/8x means that it supports both. agp 4x and agp8x slots are built almost exactly the same, they just run at different speeds. dont worry, your graphics card will work perfectly fine on the motherboard.

    and @ ck-uk.. the older cards use a higher voltage, its the newer ones that use less volts.

    How do you know that "for sure"?

    It says it supports 4x so it supports 4x. What's so difficult about that?

    go check the product at newegg with the given link. On the outside spec it say 4x/8x support but if you go into the detail spec it say only 1 8x slot. take a look before calling me ignorant.

    there your proof.

    and 4x and 8x slot are bulit differently. You cannot put a 4x card into an 8x slot. I try it before when i was helping a friend out. it won't fit in. i'm guessing it the same with putting 8x card into a 4x slot.
