I have never heard of this being done. Without getting to techy AGP cards run a little different the PCI cards. I've never seen a converter for this.

Sorry. Maybe someone else here has heard of this.

It exists

"For graphics add-in cards, Real3D developed an AGP-to-PCI adapter chip that also supports texture-map storage in additional local memory."
I'm still looking for something like available retail... but it should be out there, but to tell you the truth until I looked for it I never knew that these existed

BTW The site I found it on is Here

Welcome to the board, UnsoundUser!

The adapter will more than likely cost you more than a motherboard wit an agp slot. Else wise, I do see why you want to do this; you have the card, you have a motherboard without a slot.

May I add, I can't see any way you could put an agp in a pci slot without loosing some of the original performance.

Simply put- an agp slot talks to the processor differently than a pci slot. A much more articulate line of communication also.

I think at this point if your card is new that i would take it back to the store and get a pci card. That is about the cheapest way if you only have a pci slot.

frankly i have never heard of anything like that but i am sure there is one out there someplace, but the cost would worry me.

Good luck,
