graphics cards agp x8

I want to upgrade my graphics card. I know my AGP slot is x4 & have been told a X8 card will work fine but not to it's best performance is this true. Will a 256mb GeForce 5700 card be worth the upgrade from a Geforce 2 mx400 64mb?

i am sure you will notice a big differance in will work fine but will run at 4x if thats all the mobo will support.but i doubt there is much noticable differance,between 4x and 8x.maybe a slight differance in games.but how much?

if you download 3d mark 2001 (or 2003 but not as good)just type it into can run a before and after test.

you probally wont notice any performance difference at all between agp x8 and x4.overall games performance will be affected more by slow cpu,ram etc.

also i would save some money and get a 128mb card(a lot cheaper)and just as good.go for the highest clock and memory speeds you can get instead.

you should notice a big difference with a new card over a geforce2.
