    Hi in my haste i ordered the wrong type of GPU, an X800XT pci express rather than AGP 8x. Without returning the product and waiting for the AGP to be shipped, is there any way i can convert this reliably to work with an AGP connection without having a PCI express slot on my motherboard?

    Nope, the PCI express used a completely new bandwidth system to the AGP. PCI express is alot faster..

    lol even if there was a PCI-E to AGP converter you wouldnt want it :p, PCI-E is supposedly twice as fast as AGP 8X so I'm sure itll be worth the wait..

    You have misunderstood me. I am changing FROM PCI Express TO AGP 8X as my motherboard doesn't support it!!!!!
