    My elder sister is in USA, she is coming this oct!! And she is bringing one of the cards from :
    www.dealtime.com/xPP-Graphics_Cards-fx_5200-price_range_30_70
    ----------
    So obviously I wud like to know what I wanted to know!
    --------
    Also let me know which one out of those cards u wud prefer and why.
    I made a list.
    I thnk I wud like to get either of Gainward or Leadtek!
    ---------------
    Ur suggestions/Views r very imp. to me.
    Thx in advnce.

    Yes u can use a AGP 8X card on your 4x slot, but it wont give you the same performance as in the case of a AGP 8X card in a 8X slot.But the difference is hardly noticeable.

    yeah sure mate an 8x card will surely work on a 4x agp port but the acleration will not be achieved at the max,as the 8x cards are built to perform much more on a 8x port than a 4x port.But hey u can sure get a decent performance depending on the agp acceleration speed of ur motheroards agp slot.so go ahead buy one.peace.
