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!

well ... I need to know if I can plug in a leadtek winfast A340 AGP8X video card to an old pc with motherboard Gigabyte GA-686LX4. The old video card I'm trying to replace is RAGE PRO TURBO AGP 2x... I wanna know if it works without to damage the old pc or the video card. The new video card have not exactly the same slot with the old one but it work to plug it in.

Yes it will work. The general rule of thumb is that if it fits in the slot it will work. There is only one exception that I know of, and its not a video card. PC makers are very good about notching or changing things so that if it won't work, it won't fit.
