The 4x card WILL work in an 8x slot but it will only run at 4x speed because of the card limitation. also, the 8x card WILL work in a 4x slot but it will only run at 4x speed because of the slot limitation. i've done it. peace

Re: agp 8x vs agp 4x

No, they are backwards compatable only
which means an 4x card will work on a 8x AGP slot
but NOT vice versa

Powercolor Radeon 9550 R96 256mb Card - Lights on, noone at home!

Depends on the video card ,it might require more power ,200w is fine for onboard but add other components and the system needs more power.
Disconnect the harddrive or CD ROM drive and see if the system will start.
If it starts then you will need more power 300-400w at least but shuttle power supplies can be expensive to get.

Grapics card


Most current AGP video cards are now 8X and they will still work with your motherboard but will just be limited to 4X. Trying to find a 4X might be time consuming whereas using an 8X downgraded to 4x would be comparatively easier and faster.

Additionally most Video cards will work under XP with the appropriate drivers but Vista has a limited list of compatible Video cards.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Installing GeForce 5200 on Dell Dimension 2400

I suggest that better check that graphic card in another machine and make sure it is working.

Also find out the data transfer speed of your mother board through the AGP slot is compatible with your graphic card. (e.g. 4X, 8X, etc.)

If you are sure that your system really has an 8X AGP port (A choclate colored slot) then you could deffinitely install the card and work with it.

With the information I received the Dell Dimension 2400 deos not features an AGP 8X port, in that case it is not possible to install the card.

Then you should buy a new motherboard with AGP 8X Port to be able to install the Ge force FX 5200.
