    Hi, I think I'm confused with the AGP standard. I have a old Epox 8RGA+
    motherboard (nVIDIA nforce2 chipset based motherboard), which when I
    get into the BIOS setting, one of the options say that I could "enable"
    AGP 8x support, however, currently I'm running a ATI Radeon 8500 card
    (64MB) which (I think, after run SiSoftware Sandra), is a 4x card. So
    my questions are:

    1. Could anyone please confirm that my AGP slot does upport newer 8x
    AGP video cards??
    2. How many versions of AGP slots are there on the market?? I mean, on
    the motherboard?? I think my AGP version (according to the SiSoft
    Sandra is version 2.20), is there any other version of AGP?? Is there a
    AGP FAQ out there? thanks!

    Yes it does,but agp X 4 or X 8 only
    not X 1 or X 2 as that may damage motherboard and/or videocard

    (1.5v and 0.75v)

    Thanks! BTW what do you mean by X 4 or X 8 only?? Do you mean "4x" or
    "8x" only??
    I also took a look at www.wikipedia.org to get to know more about AGP
    standard, but still a bit confused.. For example,

    Would the eVGA GeForce 6600 LE 256MB DDR AGP (AGP 8x interface) works
    with my motherboard (Epox 8RGA+)? Thanks!
