I have an Asus a7n266-e board with the generic Geforce 2 GTS onboard video. I am going to upgrade the video card now. I guess that it is DEFINATELY time!!!
So I have an AGP 4x slot on the board. Thast is what the Asus site told me. AGP4x. So I went to pricewatch.com and I want to buy the ATI 9500 Pro. I see so many that say 8x but very few that say 4x. Can i only buy a 4x card because of my motherboard? Why are the 4x cards more expensive than the 8x?
To add more confusion I want to post this add I read so that you can decipher it with me:
The ad means that the video card will work in any motherboard that has a agp slot of 2x or greater. So if you buy the card and put it in your computer it will work at the supported speed of your motherboard which is 4x. to take advantage of 8x you would have to get a new motherboard that suports it.
The RADEON 9500PRO will work fine on your computer.
