    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

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.

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.

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.

Compaq s4020WM AGP Questions


I don't think there's a 8x AGP card made that would not work at 4x, and any 4x capable AGP slot should handle an 8x card. AGP 1.0 (x2) signals at 3.3V AGP 2.0 (x4) signals at 1.5V AGP 3.0 (x8) signals at 0.8V
