HY! I want to change the video card from a pentium 2! Its is a rage pro turbo agp 2x with a leadtek winfast a 340! Pls I'm in a hurry! I really need to know if this two video cards are compatible! Will it damaga my comp. if they're not fully compatible? I tried to mount it and it got in the slot but I havn't the courage to start the pc! :na:  The difference between the slots are that in the old one there are 2 slots (one smaller and one bigger) and in the new one (winfast) there are (3 smaller slots) but in total they reach the dimension of the 2 slots from theold video card!

If the slots are not identical, do not plug the card in.

You need to be careful with the AGP bus, but usually if the card fits it will work, the slots are keyed to prevent damage, but not everyone followed the rules.
Have a read here:

If you are in any doubt at all, do as JSC says: do not use it!

yes... the old video card is a 2x agp and the new one is 8x agp! (I rechecked)
So... you say that I can plug in the nwo one even though the slots arn't exactly the same...

So...I'll try to plug it in tomorrow morning :D 

OK! So than...

Thank you very very much for your help!
