    I really dont think it can, but I was wondering. thanks
     
  2. no, definately not. if you tried you would find that the agp card would physically not go in, cos the connectors are different shapes. wrong jigsaw piece scenario.

    i tried it with an old voodoo video card when i first bought one and it was agp. I forced it into a pci slot, worst experience of my life.

    *LOL* That must have been hard. The PCI slot is further out than the AGP. Did you have the card sticking out of the case?? No offence dude, but that was a really stupid move. If it doesn't fit, it doesn't fit!

    I don't think so. Then again, I've heard nothing is impossible. I guess you could spend a few hundred dollars trying to achieve this conversion and wind up with an ulcer. Personally, I would'nt try it.:D

  11. if you dont know what your doing, stay out of the case

    if you dont know what your doing, stay out of the case

    it will cost you twice as much for me to fix the problem and the damage you did trying to do it yourself than it would have for me to have fixed it in the first place..........:eek:

    Also, if you attempt it don't forget to wear your ground strap, rubber boots, eye protection, have you eye-wash station up to date, and all MSDS records current and readily available.:D ;)

  15. 1) its just a general sarcastic remark made to anyone who thinks they know everything about how to fix their computer just because they know how to turn it on and load a program.........
    2)i have no clue what you are even saying ..........i thought it was lighthearted in here.......but some take it all to seriously..jeeezzzz
