    why do you need to convert? you still wouldn't get your performance.

    It would be rather hard to make a converter too, AGP accesses RAM differently than PCI does.

    To my knowledge this wouldn't be possible.

    anythings possible, but it would be VERY difficult to make a converter. It wouldn't be worth the trouble in my opinion.

    i only ask because i got a ati radeon 9000 graphics card and the only slots i have on my board are PCI and the card is AGP ... but if its not possible i guess i'll just have to hold onto it

    hehe, the metaphor that comes to mind is trying to put a square object into a round hole.
