I just remembered that my mobo, a Asus P4PE has only 4x AGP, since I now have a card that is x8 capable, question is are there games out there, for example Call of Duty 2, take advantage of this????? & if they do would I see a difference of 4x or 8x AGP & what does it really do?????

Indeed the only other difference between the m is bandwidth obviouslty 8x has a larger bandwidth and therfore os double the speed of 4x but not to worry its not all that noticible.

I never had a problem with my 6200 running in 4x in my old Compaq. The performance decrease is negligable. I mean, like less than 100 3dmark05 score.
