I'm still using an old Soyo motherboard (6BA+III) and trying to squeeze a little more time out of it before my next major upgrade.

I'm long overdue for a new videocard and saw a Nvivia Geforce2 mx 400 onsale at tigerdirect for $10 after rebate.

I don't play the newest games, so I'm not reluctant to get something older and somewhat out of date as long as it will work.

However, the Geforce 2 requires and AGP 2.0 compliant port and my mobo has an AGP 1.0 compliant port. I assume this isn't going to fly, so I'm thinking about buying an Nvidia TNT 2 AGP card with 32Megs.

Am I correct about the Geforce 2 not working with my current board?

Any downside to using TNT2?

Like I said I don't play cutting edge games, I just want to upgrade to the degree that I can until I get a new system. My current video card is a 8MB Riva 128, so its a pretty weak link in my system.

I believe that as long as a video card can run at 2xAGP it will be fine.
