It says you need a AGP 8x. I think I only have a 4x. Maybee not even. Can I still buy the card?

A few things worth mentioning:

The MSI card comes with about 3 games... Including XIII (whoohoo...). I don't know about the EVGA one, but I bet that it doesn't come with as much nice software as the MSI one.

If it says you need AGP 8x, and you don't have it, then it probably won't work. I'm not sure though...

yes a 8x card will work on a 4x agp slot. just wont run as good as it could. i would seriously think about getting a new mobo too, and make sure you hjave a 350w psu minimum
