    If your motherboard only supports 4x AGP and you put an 8x AGP it will run at 4x but there will be a performance difference as the board pumps out more instructions per cycle. There is no detrimental affect, it just has more bandwidth to offer.

    The card in the photo below is from the XFX company, which I use and select for my clients all the time. XFX offers a double lifetime warranty. What this amounts to is that by registering your product online at their website (and you won't get spammed all the time) you get the lifetime warranty and should you sell your PC with it installed still, the new owner can register it also and get the second lifetime warranty. So before installing take a moment to write down the serial number so you can enter it at XFX.com.

    This particular model, the 6200 is pretty darn good. I have two in one
    of my PCs and I have an AGP version and a PCI version installed. I can
    connect three monitors to it for gaming.



    This one here is sold by Provantage at this location
    for $51.09 plus shipping. Provantage is a highly regarded seller on the
    Internet most people have not heard about. This model has DVI + VGA and
    S-video out so you can port downloaded movies to your TV via a DVD
    player or TV S-video in itself. It support DirectX9.0 and Shader model
    3 and is also Vista certified should you ever opt for that OS.

Will a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 video card work on a P4B533-E motherboard?


HI Lau_kua08,

First off, your motherboard is a AGP 4x slot, and the Card is a AGP 8X card. However, NVIDIA based graphic cards which support AGP 8x mode (Accelerated Graphics Port) follow the AGP 3.0 specification. The AGP 3.0 specification retains backwards compatibility with older AGP 4x technology. All NVIDIA Geforce and Quadro GPU's which support AGP 8x mode are downwards compatible with AGP 4x motherboards. When a graphics card which operates at AGP 8x mode is installed on a motherboard which only supports up to AGP 4x mode, the card will automatically switch to AGP 4x operation.

So, yes it will work.

Good Luck,

Mark

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:

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!)

Problem with Video on motherboard Gygabyte 8VM533M-RZ


The answer is a definite YES. By definition of the AGP set standard, 8x gear absolutely must be backward compatible to 4x. 

Any 8x card in 4x-only mainbaord, or 4x AGP card in 8x capable motherboard must and most definitely will work.

For adding an additional graphics card


Your board only supports AGP 4x graphic cards. You should be able to use any AGP 4x card or even some AGP 8x cards. Some of the 8x cards are backwards compatible but will run at the slower 4x speed. You can try places like TigerDirect.com or Newegg.com to see what they have available. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Looking to upgrade video. is there a limit to uprade old mboard


Only cards that work with this board are AGP 4x graphics cards or possiblly AGP 8x cards that are backwards compatible. If you buy an 8x card do your research to make sure it's backwards compatible before purchase. Newer graphics cards are pci-express x16 or pci-e 2. These will not work with your board. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Your motherboard only supports AGP. You can use any AGP graphics card that supports up to 4X AGP. nVidia and ATI make great cards as well as other manufacturers that mak boards using nVidia and ATI chipsets. I would recomend a card with at least 512MB of memory onboard. I hope this helps.

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.
