In some computers, if you go into your bios, there's a setting... I can't remember where, but on my computer, I have the option of choosing AGP 4X or 8X.. Check to see if you received software on a CD that came with the video card, it may have an overclock utility or something that will tell you what AGP mode you are in.

The nvidia control panel will tell you when you right click the background > properties > settings > advance > nvidia > classic.

Thanks. It does say 8x in nv control panel. Is that tested or just the read from chipset?

Just seems like my computer isnt running very smoothly.

I dl Passmark Benchtest software but even it only ran 3d test at 4x, and the only way to compare with thier database is to register the software. Piontless for software that doesnt seem very good.

My mobo is intel d865gbf

Its bios utility only has settings for onboard video, but says in manual agp 8x compatable although onboard chip is 4x.
