    i *really* dont want to change my computer because, well, it kicks ass. but im a gamer and i want to by a neato x800xt or equivalent. my computer only supports agp4x . right now im running a 256mb 9800pro .

    question is, am i going to see a real performance upgrade in gaming if i change to a 256 mb x800xt or equivalent, or is it just going to stay the same due to the agp speed?

    thanks in advance

    You might some improvement but of course you won't get everything out of the card without getting a new mobo with an AGP 8x slot.

    AGP 4x or AGP 8x wont make much different, That x800xt wont be able to fill the AGP 4x bus.
