  1. As a matter of fact, yes you can...

    just a friendly head's up tho, there are numerous threads that ask this very same question...try doing a thread/web search before posting...

    just curious, what video card with what mobo?
  2. It'll work fine. There is very little, if any, performance difference.
  3. I have the 4x, agp 2.0, 1.5v slot too and I have been trying to figure out how good of a graphics card I could get without it being bottlnecked by the 4x slot. I was thinking about getting x1600 pro or an x800 gto. Does anybody know at what card would be best for the 4x slot? Most of the comparisons I have seen are with older cards.

    Oops. Sorry about that. I did do a search on my motherboard but I didn't on interface speed. Duh me. :lol: Like I'm new to forum searches or something. Heh. :lol:

    Motherboard? It's an ole Soyo SY-K7V Dragon Plus. I've got a GeForce Ti200 on her right now with an AMD XP 1900 processor and 512MB of RAM on one stick. Been running this since 2000. I just got in the upgrade mode and am wondering how far I can take her. I'd like to increase memory and upgrade the video card.

    All thoughts welcome.
