Question about MSI KM4M-L Motherboard

MSI motherboard model 6734 AGP interface

How do I know what standards (i.e. 1X 2X 4X 8X) on the AGP interface of the model 6734 will be supported ? I just don't know what AGP card to get.
I would like to get a decent graphics card, and one that the motherboard will work with, but I don't want to break the seal on an anti-static bag only to find out it won't work with the model 6734 board. Will an 8Xbandwidth card work in a 1X slot, and can the board support 8X ?
Thanks,
Don

Looks like your motherboard is a MSI KM4AM-L detailed here:

http://www.msicomputer.co.uk/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=572&maincat_no=1

If so, then it has an AGP slot which will run at 4x and 8x.

Remember to check the BIOS settings after you install it to make sure it is set to 8x, if that is what your card will take.

Compatability


You have an AGP expansion slot for a graphics card.
(Accelerated Graphics Port)
It uses either 1x, 2X, or 4X graphics cards. Since the only AGP graphics cards out there are 4X or 8X, the 1X, and 2X are moot points. (They were also Junk anyway!)

Your AGP graphics slot only supports AGP graphics cards that are 1.5 volts. There are AGP graphics cards out there, that are Universal. Universal in that they will run as AGP 8X, (.8 volts), or AGP 4X, (1.5 volts)

This is an example:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4103516&CatId=318

Don't expect to play the high end new intense games with this. I'm afraid you'll have to update your motherboard, processor, ram memory, and a better graphics card to do that.

(Example? XFX Nvidia nForce 680i LT SLI motherboard, Intel Core2 Duo E8200 cpu, Corsair XMS2 PC6400 ram memory, 1GB x2 of them, (DDR2 at 800MHz), and XFX Geforce 9800GTX+, vid card. (Plus OCZ SteathXStream 600W power supply)
This won't break the bank, and will slam some games to the wall!)

Graphics card support to motherboard D845GBV


AGP 2.0 and 3.0 4x and 8x feed with the 1.5v spec. AGP 1.0 1x and 2x was fed at 3.3v. In short, you should be fine.

VIDEO CARD COMPATIBILITY


All AGP based cards are backwards compatible, so an 8x card should operate at 4x 2x and 1x

however what is important is the voltage of your slot, you can tell by looking at the slot itself,  the AGP slot may have a partition either 1/3 or 2/3rds down the slot, or may have no partition at all,

this slot partition is to prevent you from inserting a card of the wrong voltage.

If there is no partition in the AGP slot then the slot has a switchable voltage, and will automatically switch to the appropriate voltage, (on request from the graphics card AUTOMATIC)

 

so all you need to check is that the graphics card you buy has slots on the AGP interface that accomodate those on your board

 

according to the manual

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/DownloadFile.aspx?catid=1&driverid=413&areaid=2&LanID=0

This board has a 4x AGP slot
