Just a quick question.. a motherboard with an 8x AGP slot... is this backwards compatible?

IE: If I put a 4x AGP video card in, will this work? :)

Cheers,

Ok.. another question.... In what order speedwise would you put these CPUs?

Celeron 2.4ghz
Athlon 1.6ghz
Duron 1.3ghz
Athlon 1.2ghz

I've put them in order of what I think the are (fastest first, slowest last) but wanna know if I'm correct... Shuffling around PC's at the moment and rebuilding my on air PC's.

I think usually Athlon's are faster?  But the Celeron is quite a faster CPU and may out perform the Athlon?

I would say:

Celeron 2.4ghz
Athlon 1.6ghz
Athlon 1.2ghz
Duron 1.3ghz


A Duron is a pretty lacklustre CPU, kind of like comparing a Celeron to a P4, but probably even worse Frown
They have a very small cache and the Front-Side Bus is slower than an Athlon as I remember.

Basically, avoid Durons like the plague if you have a choice!
