support 4x and only supports 8x agp.


Anyone know what the highest/best performing agp card is that definitely can run on 4x agp?


And another question:
Will I notice any difference between a x1600pro agp at 4x agp, and a higher rated card at 4x agp, or my mobo/cpu going to be a huge bottleneck? (d845wn intel mobo/p4 2.6ghz)


I'd like to play bf2142, as I really like the previous battlefield games. I'd also like to play oblivion at a framerate higher than 5 outdoors ;)

weeellll

your cpu will be a bigger bottleneck than the 4x agp port. I know for a fact that the x1950 pro runs on 4x and 8x agp as i have used it on both :p 

even with the bottleneck you should see a fairly big performance gain with a x1950 pro than the x1600

by the way, make sure you have a good enough psu to take the x1950 card

Keep your cash. the X1600PRO will serve you fine until you can get a PCI-E computer with Core 2.

I've been toying with builds. But it usually comes back to trying not to spend more than $500 at one time.

edit: I've upgraded the PSU to a 550 watt. The next step is a new mobo/processor/video card/memory.

I'm just kind of depressed that they've come out with DDR3 now, so that any build I make now will be in the same situation as my current one in probably 2 years.
