    Friends..,

    i have a motherboard of Intel 810 chipset. I recently purchased an AGP 8x Nvidia GeForce 4 MX440 with 64mb memory in it.

    I have P-III processor and my board have onboard graphics so they don't have AGP Slot for my board. But I have PCI slots in my system .

    Is it possible for me to connect the card to my PCI slots with any source..., may be by using any external converter for converting PCI to AGP.

    Please help me !!!

    NO. NO. NO.

    AGP has greater bandwidth [8x or 16x] than PCI. that is one of the reazons to put AGP in mobos in the first place.

    my suggestion: return the card and hunt for a good PCI card. Best of luck.

    ps: Hunt for a "Pci" card not a "PCIe" card. there is a difference.

    No its not possible to convert AGP to PCI....But u will get MX440 PCI card...
    If the vendor is willing to change the card then get the PCI version of the card...
