I just bought a new video card for a computer in out bar, and I didn't notice that the computer's AGP slot is 4x max. (It is in a tight area, so it is one of those compact compaq desktops)
The card is an 8x AGP card and the slot is apparently 4x max. Is there a way to get this card to work in this computer? A 4x AGP low-profile video card with dual monitor output is hard to find at all, let alone something with decent RAM.
I don't remember the model of the computer off hand..I'll reply with that later. Video card is a geforce 4 128 MB DDR low-profile 8x AGP, dell part number F1811.
Thanks,

I'm planning to buy an AGP 8x graphics card but I'm not sure yet if it's going to function well. It has an AGP 4x slot. Processor: Pentium 4 2GHz. Jouer ala roulette gratuit sans.

  1. Old 4x cards are frequently higher voltage whereas the newer 8x ones are lower voltage. Hence pop goes the 8x card. If you are lucky the AGP socket cutouts will prevent you doing this. It is not as bad or clear cut as this, there are x8 AGP cards that will run in x4 slots, eg ATI Radeon 9600, maybe they can adjust the higher voltage to suit???
