squonksc, GF means girlfriend and if you did know then that was funny, but I don't think that one will work because it has a AGP 2X.

From memory, AGP x8 cards will still run on AGPx2 slots - at x2 bandwidth, obviously

Sorry man, was just a joke.

GF = girlfriend, didn't think of that one, language barrier. I try hard though.

And I tried to be of service to you. Have overlooked the 2x barrier.

Again sorry,

no harm intended.
