Hi! im thinking about buying a Radeon 9700 but my motherboard only supports 4x AGP. So my question is: Is it worth to buy a Radeon 9700 if i only can run it in 4x AGP? I currently have a Geforce 2 Mx =(

Yes. The performance gain difference 4x to 8x is negligble anyway and you wouldn't notice any performance drop between the Radeon 9700pro in your 4x slot compared to one tested in a 8x slot.

The Vidio card is backward compatitably,Hell I got 8x but never use it.I keep mine set on 4x and most poeple use it also from what read use 4x,hell the bandwidth hasen't cought up with it yet.beside I recommend a nvidia card :).That will fan the boys hehe.
