AGP Video Cards

Will 4X AGP video card work in a motherboard with any speed other than 4X? I
have an old computer with a slower AGP slotthat I want to install a new
video card in.

Thanks

Try it and see. The card should be backwards compatible, but it really
depends on just how old the motherboard is. When you get into trouble is
when trying to put a new 8x card in a 1x or 2x motherboard, or vice versa.

Anything is backwards compatible. If you have an AGP 2x then you may be able
to Overclock your voltages and get it to work.

Depends on the card, many 4x cards are backwards compatible at least down to
2x. Check with the manufacturer though, specifying the exact mobo you have.
