I'm thinking of purchasing a new graphics card for my computer but do not want to buy one and find it doesnt work with my computer. My comp has a AGP but i dont know if it is AGP, AGP 4x or AGP 8x. Would any of these work in my computer or does it have to be a certain one?

I believe so. Don't quote me on that though.

It's probably 4x if you don't know, look in your motherboard manual.

If you can only do 4x its fine cos 8x makes little difference in performance.
