I'm thinking to buy a new video card which requires AGP 4x or 8x
support. However, I'm not sure whether my PC's motherboard supports
AGP. It was bought about 5 years ago and the vender was already out of
business. The CPU is AMD Athlon. Thanks. Jonathan

i take it u mean the baord u have in ur system atm
goto ur device manager and look at ur system properties
look for an agp port property tag
if it doesnt have 1 then u r out of luck and need to upgrade ur board b4 u
buy the card

device manager is found by right clicking on my computer and it is stuated
in one of the tabs there.
depending on ur operating system which u havent stated.

It isn't in the device manager.

It's much simpler than that. The motherboard support AGP if there is an
AGP port on it. It is a PCI-like brown connector, at the end of the
line of white PCI connectors, and a little misaligned.
