Hello,

Can you post links to the hardware you are thinking of getting?
As long as the card has the same interface as the board then there should be no problems.
Regards,

Alan.

The board has an 8xAGP slot, which matches the video card.

The fact that the video card employs DDR2 has nothing to do with it fitting in the AGP slot, since that DDR2 is innate in the card.

Not for me, I don't game and would never need a card with that kind of memory/speed :huh:.

I and other routine users could probably still get by on video cards with 8MB of RAM, it's just that we benefit with more RAM in cards because of the ever-escalating marketing to gamers.

It's your money and your system...you ought to make the decisions what goes into its innards :thumbsup:.

OTOH, I find it very essential to have video-capture capability in a card of some type, be it PCI or AGP. I'm still on AGP motherboards :huh:.
