Does Win95(original release) support agp graphics?...I am considering a motherboard with built-in agp graphics support and specific drivers are provided with the board..Also the board will only use up to 4 mg of system memory..will this be a limitation later? The board is pushed by AMD and is inexpensive considering I will not have to buy a agp card   and will get agp graphics without the big pentium II expense.. don't want to have to buy win95 osr2 if I don't have to...

Yes, it certainly does.  At a minimum as a standard VGA board, which is necessary for boot time and any MSDOS mode operation.  The drivers included with the MB will make Win95 work with it at full speed.

Thanks jhance....I will be glad to give you the points if you will comment on the 4 mb limitation of system memory used for the agp support...have you read anything on agp boards coming out next year being able to use or needing alot more ram? and lastly ..do you think AMD would work with amibios to upgrade the bios to support more system ram in future since they are trying to provide a socket7-agp alternative to intels' pentium II ?

I don't see 4MB of video memory as a limitation unless you are really pushing the limits of video performance.  You can easily do 1280x1064 on a 19" CRT with this.  If you are doing heavy duty CAD or graphics, then I'd look elsewhere, in that case at least 8MB should be used.
