    Hi ppl,I currently have a KT3 ULTRA 2 mobo and I have installed a gforce fx 5200 graphics card that supports 8x agp.I was wondering if it was possible to run the agp at x8 with this mobo instead of the x4 that i seem to be restricted to?Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly recieved,THANX

    I am guessing that this is your mobo? http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=341&MODEL=MS-6380E As opposed to this.....
    http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=357&MODEL=MS-6593 considering it doesnt have AGP3.0 hehe

    In either case, check your BIOS me thinks the AGP3.0 mode is set there! If not, also check your video card settings (make sure you also check using the drivers that were bundled with the video card rather than nvidia drivers -- there are some funky features included there sometimes, as well as info too)
