ACtually I am still a bit confused. If I have a 2x/4x agp slot, a 4x/8x Radeon 9600 Pro will work fine, but only at 4x right?

Yeah, I don't think you can use the 8x AGP part of the card I do know 8x AGP is the best right now, but if the video card can run at the 4x AGP then you should be fine.

all agp graphics cards are backwards compatible, i have a
girlfriend fx 5200 128mb with agp 8*

but my comp only got an 2* agp slot

it works fine and still runs games wicked

so the 8* radeon will be fine, u will just only get half the bandwidth speed of 8*
