Will 3D work slowly?
Surely a little...
It Disable the AGP support.
So you're card is running in PCI mode.

But it's better than a black screen.

I own the KT400 chipset on a A7V8X-X ASUS Motherboard and it isn't in the
kernel.

FYI :
0 : disable agp
1 : use NVIDIA's internal AGP support, if possible
2 : use AGPGART, if possible
3 : use any agp support (try AGPGART, then NVIDIA's AGP)

I can use AGPGART since I have updated the Bios of my motherboard. (version 1006 to 1007)...Asus say in the information that it fix lot of problems with AGP8X boards...
I have read that there was lot of problems with the KT400 & AGP Graphic boards.

Here is a benchmak using glxgears (done with a 2400+).

AGP Disabled (0):
2962 frames in 5.0 seconds = 592.400 FPS
2862 frames in 5.0 seconds = 572.400 FPS
2978 frames in 5.0 seconds = 595.600 FPS
3018 frames in 5.0 seconds = 603.600 FPS
3009 frames in 5.0 seconds = 601.800 FPS
2975 frames in 5.0 seconds = 595.000 FPS
2977 frames in 5.0 seconds = 595.400 FPS
3011 frames in 5.0 seconds = 602.200 FPS

With AGPGART (2)
3320 frames in 5.0 seconds = 664.000 FPS
3358 frames in 5.0 seconds = 671.600 FPS
3367 frames in 5.0 seconds = 673.400 FPS
3432 frames in 5.0 seconds = 686.400 FPS
3420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 684.000 FPS
3350 frames in 5.0 seconds = 670.000 FPS
3433 frames in 5.0 seconds = 686.600 FPS

As you can see there isn't lot of difference, and it's hard to see the difference on a game.

I will try to do a benchmark under Quake2
