I have a Intel Desktop Board D845GERG2 running GeForce 4 Ti4200 with AGP8X

I've never upgraded any hardware ever and im wondering if there is anything I should be weary of whilst purchasing a graphics card for this motherboard..

Thanks in advance

Hi Reecie

I may be stating the obvious, but as you have never upgraded before, make sure that the new graphics card is also AGP.
Newer graphics cards are usually PCI-E which will not fit into an AGP slot.
