A lot of older card will not work with newer AVG slots, the voltages among other things are different as well as being keyed to prevent the card being inserted in the wrong type of slot.

This will give you some indication as to whether the old card will work or not.

X8 is newer. The number refers to the internal multiplication speed of the bus frequency which is 66 Mhz for AGP. Consequently the higher the frequency the lower the operating voltage otherwise things would just start getting a bit too hot.

The 6200 isn't a very good card. You don't plan on using it for gaming, do you?

"can my motherboard support all agp 8x agp card?"

Please stop asking the same stupid question. 8X is 8X , so YES, your board will support ANY 8X AGP card, IF you have a decent power supply! If you want to be able to play games & play them well, you need a GAMING card. The Geforce 6200 is a low end piece of sh!t, NOT a gaming card.

The problem with the Radeon HD cards is that they were designed for PCI-exppress, not AGP. Driver support has always been a problem with the AGP versions.

I don't know where you're from but I'm guessing India? It's tough for us to suggest what to get if we don't know what's available. AGP cards were pretty much phased out several years ago so all the good gaming cards are no longer being sold in stores, so you'll most likely have to get a used card. One of the best 8X AGP gaming cards available was the Radeon X1950 Pro & even that is a 5 yr old card.

I mentioned in post one that voltages vary. The link posted gives you the details.

That was reinforced in post three when I mentioned that the higher the frequency, the lower the voltage.

As for may age, it is considerably more than yours - that you can be sure of.

I have removed your Email dress as it is a bad idea to put it on a public forum like this as it will attract every spammer in the world.

I am sorry, I do not do personal instruction. I used to get paid for that but I am now of an age where I do not need to get paid for anything. I just do this to fill in some of my spare time. I didn't get my hands on a computer till I was in my thirties so at 14, you are well ahead of the game.

If you want to be an engineer do what I did, read everything you can get your hands on. You have one big advantage over me, all I had was books, you have the wealth of information that is available on the Internet.
