. What I want to know is, will this card (AGP 8x) run in a 4x slot. If it does will I still be able to unlock the extra pipes? (as i've heard is possible). Even if this will work, as its only AGP 4x will I see a significant improvement in graphics? I'm not very knowledgable on the issue of graphics cards, so if anyone could give me any advice on whether this should work, and if it would be worthwhile, that'd be great.
The 6800Le wil work great. However for more power I recommend a x800XL or higher.
