My problem is with my computer, if i plug my monitor into the regular AGP slot my monitor will not work, yet if i plug it into my video card agp slot, it will work!? But, this is almost as bad, because although everything comes up, when i play videos, on the internet, there seems to be a lot of pixels missing from them. And when i play video games, the picture goes extremely haywire.....as in lines going through everywhere, ect. and my game slows down alot. Please can someone help me! do i need to roll over to my old intel graphics card?

You have managed to cornfuse me rather quickly. I do not understand what you mean by "regular" agp slot and video card agp slot. as I have never seen a motherboard with more than one agp slot and believe whole heartedly they do not exist please clarify this for me. and we'll move on from there. I am revising this response and want to ask do you have integrated video or are you confusing a pci slot and video card for "regular agp" if you have a pci card installed and your wondering why it will not work it's due to the fact that the agp graphics card is going to override any onboard or pci video card. to get the other one to work you have to either disable the agp card or enter the bios and configure the pci or onboard video to be the primary video. let me know how it works out.
