Is there anything special a person needs to do when installing an AGP video card.  For instance special drivers or anything like that.  I need to know if it is worth getting an AGP or just stick with PCI.

mission,

Agp is up to 4 times faster then pci and any special drivers will be included with the video card, there is one problem you may run into, and this is if you have the original win95 or version A then agp will not work with this setup, so make sure you do not have version A you would benefit from agp as it is very fast and does make a difference.

95a will not support agp, it never has and never will, so unless you plan on upgrading to win98 you will not beable to use any agp card and also no usb devices, that is also only supported under a newer version of windows. It you don't want to upgrade then do not get involved with the Agp card.

If you have further ? then please let me know.
