4 speed or 8

Hi i am buying a new gfx card but my motherboard only runs at 4 speed is it worth me buying a whole new board as well just to run my card at 8x for a few months. Before i intend to do a big upgrade anyway…?

No. The difference between 4x and 8x AGP is nil. Waste your money on a new socket 939 mobo and GF6800GT instead. Or if you’re an Intel fanatic, a 925X mobo and X800 XT.

i dont really wanna up grade my motherboard yet i wanna wait and then in about 6 months buy a new one with a new athlon 64 bit chip :slight_smile:

Thanks for the advise though :bow:

I have already bought my card now so don’t worry about posting replys. Thanks!
