    PCI to AGP?
    I don't think it is possible... is it?
    Because AGP cards are manufactured differently to PCI cards, but I'm not entirely sure.

    not only is architecture different but the bus speeds too... pci I believe is 33mhz v/s 66 for the ddr...

    I can't see a pci device running in an agp slot

    just buy a new card... they are pretty cheap out there...

    no, actually, it won't run in a AGP, it WILL however run in an ISA or AMR slot... umm, or even one of those old Proprietary IBM thingy's that was onlike 4 computers.

    While you are at it, maybe you would like to try DDR RAM on that board...should work just fine in those SDRAM slots!:p
