I currently have a 4600TI, but I'm in the process of planning an upgrade to my motherboard/video card soon. All the motherboards I've looked at so far are AGP 4X. My questions are:

1. If I'm planning on getting a 5900 (when they become available) are they going to REQUIRE an AGP 8X motherboard?

2. Any ideas if the performance difference will be that noticeable between 4X and 8X with a 5900?


Thanks for your input!

I think the answer for both is NO...

agp 8x is not required... and no... there is no noticeable difference between agp 4x and 8x...

nah, it is pertaining to the need for AGP 8x vs. 4x because this guy is probably worried that his chipset might not be compatible with the product which he may buy in the near future;)
