If your mother board supports AGP, does it matter whether the video crad is 2X/4X or 4X/8X

Depends on whether or not the MB supports either 2X/4X or 4X/8X.

If you have Everset, look and see what you motherboard is, if it is a VAR product like Dell, Compaq, and so on you will probably need to google the model number and revision to find out what the AGP specs are for it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Absolutely right!

I've been using Everest for quite a while, and I forgot that you could get those specs. I'll be fifty five this month, does this qualify as a senior moment? :thumbsup:
