I´ll use a GA-586AP Board with a 100MHz Pentium. I believe that I can use a 3D PCI-Graphiccard only in PCI 2.1, is that true? How can I explore if the Mainboard supports PCI 2.1?

Your PCI 3d card  should be fine which ever slot it is in.

Shareware version is very nice. Has a mainboard diagnostic that will tell you what version PCI your mainboard supports.
I checked the gigabyte mainboard site, but they don't mention your board in particular, or what version of pci compliance is used on any board.

dudleyf: ok, i´ll try this! but is it really true that i need PCI 2.1 to get 3d performance?

Not that I know of, I don't know where your info came from. I'd check the specs of the video card in question and if it doesn't say it needs 2.1 compliant pci, then I wouldn't worry about it.
If this comment and my other anwser don't satisfy, feel free to reject them, you'll get more comments if the anwser isn't locked.

PCI 2.1 : electronic standart : frequence, voltage, bus wide  .....
Where is something about DMA.

DMA is use by 3D card.
