Re: system doesn't see AGP card
i,m glad you got some help with this problem.
This all sounds very sophisticated and Technical. Surely you should be able to enter the system Bios, and change the settings to boot From The AGP Card First Rather Than The PCI Card. Or alternatively consider that you may have a faulty AGP Card or AGP motherboard Slot.
Finally is there Any Onboard Jumpers to Set ??

If you installed an AGP graphics card before your fist boot of the system, you will not receive display. By default the onboard graphics is set to boot display. (If this is the case, remove the AGP graphics card & boot the system). The Asus P4SGX-MX can only use a 4x AGP 1.5volt (only) card. There is an order of sequences to perform before installing/ adding an AGP graphics card on to the board when the board also uses an integrated graphics card. First, shut down the system & unplug the power supply from the PC. Connect your monitor to the VGA port at the rear of the board. Remove the AGP card. Re-connect the power supply & boot the system. You should have display? Re-boot the system. As the system starts up press the delete key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. The bios main menu will load. (Open your manual). Go to section 2.4.3, page 2-20 under Advanced, PCI configuration. Set Primary VGA bios to [AGP VGA Card]. Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart. Press & hold the power on/ off button on the PC case until the system shuts off. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Insert the AGP card into the AGP slot. Connect your monitor to the AGP card. Check all internal data & power cables, (Incase something came loose). Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. You should have display! Install your video software. If your using the integrated VGA PCI graphics card, go over the bios settings page 2-18 & 2-20.
Hi ****, you can increase you system speed slightly (Depending on the total memory speed of the card), by adding an AGP 4x video card & setting your bios to boot to AGP. See page 2-16 in your manual. Change, Init Display First to [AGP]. Doing this will disable the onboard - integrated video card. (Doing this will also free your system memory which is used to run the onboard graphics card). Increasing your system memory to its max of 2GB will help as well. Here is Crucial's memory link for your board. http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=P4GE-MXYou should increase the CPU if at all possible to its max speed in-order to see an over-all increase of system performance. (This is not what you asked for, so I'll only include Asus link for supported CPU's, for the P4GE-MX motherboard). http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4GE-MXDon't expect lighting speed but you will notice game playing speed much better. Programs should load much faster, ECT. Upgrading the AGP must comply with 4x/8x (+1.5volt only). Please see page 1-12 in your manual. Looking for XFX video card is best because it carries a lifetime warranty. Try this link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150210 You can continue to search for an XFX Geforce cards. (Best on the market for their lifetime warranty).
Good luck ****!
Though the AGP slot is faster than a PCI slot, you may find an XFX PCI card with more video memory on it. Some even run DDR3 & DDR3 memory.
