I have here an Nvidia Geforce 6600GT 256MB agp 8x..
And i have an motherboard 4x slot..
My question was:
Will it work / fit yes or no.. and the speed of the card is 1ghz..
will it split in 2 if i put it in the slot yes or no..
Thanks for the information :)
sry for bad english :retard: :paranoid:

Yes, providing your power supply has enough juice for this
significant upgrade, it is technically workable.
Hmmmm. Odd question, but given the two alternatives I'd
have to choose "no".
Can you elaborate on what you are asking?
If what you mean is, will running an 8X card in a 4X slot be
much of a performance loss, the answer is no, 4X is almost
as fast and since your system is old enough to have only 4X
slot, it is most likely the rest of the system will be the
bottleneck, not the video card or the AGP slot speed.
