Will agp card work in a PCIE slot?

Hey
I have an Asus mobo and it's got 2 PCIE slots; I dont have a PCIE video card yet.
I am wondering if I could put my agp video card in the PCIE slot till I get my new video card, like in a couple days.

Anyone know if it'll work? I dont want to try it without knowing cus I'd hate to fry my new mobo :wink:

Thanks

  1. It won't work mate, two different technologies.
  2. no it wont work.
  3. Seriously... that's a troll if ever I saw one.
  4. There's no such thing as a dumb question... yeah right!
  5. It will only work if you put DDR in to DDR2 slots, a different socket type in rather than the one you're using, and hook up a ATA drive with SATA cables. Then slam your wang in a door and you're all good to go.

    BWHAHAHAHAHAHHAA!
  7. Have you actually taken a look at the slots? Did you look at your GC and then at the MB? A little deduction please...
  8. :trophy: :lol: :lol: :lol:
  9. You guys forgot to tell him to trim the card to fit the slot. As long as you can force it in, it will work fine. You guys just don't want to help the newbies, do you?
  10. im sure it can be done with a hacksaw and some duct tape
  11. i actually seen a pic where a guy sawed off the back of
    a 7800gt pci-e card to try and make it fit in a pci slot.

    he posted the pic stating (i carefully cut the card, took my time)
    now why doesnt it work? lol

    No. You won't even be able to plug it into the slot.

    Ok:

    If it doesn't fit then his motherboard is defective. He should send it to me for proper disposal.
  15. No, they are two completly different slots

    And now for some more fun, maybe you should ask if there is an AsRock mobo you could trade your Asus in for that would make things work. :twisted:
