Presently I have a Gigabyte tech. Digi-link
DGA-8IDML motherboard with an AGP 4x slot. I am planning to buy a
a Geforce4 ti4200 AGP card(64MB or 128MB).
I might also go for the Ti4600(I'll need to dish out a lot more money for that though)
Will my motherboard support it/them?

What all factors determine an AGP cards compatibility?

Here is your board:

You have AGP 4X support so yes the video card either one will work.

The Ti42/4600 cards use AGP 4x.  That is what really basically determins compatibility.  As well as what OS you'll be running.  Assuming it is Win98, ME, XP, or 2k, the card should be fine.  Other OS's I am not sure if they are compatible.

Depends also on the brand of Geforce that you are getting.  This one here supports AGP 4x and 2x:

Requirements for this ti4600 card is listed near the bottom of the page:

Oh yes and your motherboard supports AGP 2.0 which is also in the description from the link to your board in my previous comment:

Well rdx86, Even tho, you checked the links before hand you never specified what you did.  You didnt tell us.  I posted the links.  And given the right information.  If you solve the question yourself.  next time before I post or anyone else posts the correct information then you should say so and ask the admins for a refund of your points.  But next time if the answer is correct but is not what you expected or you answered the question yourself but someone else comes along and answers it to...only an A grade should be acceptible, because the answer is right.  And no one has posted anything else correctly either you or any one else.  B grades should be given if the answer is close to what is right, but doesnt get you all the way there.  C grades and less should not even be given.  In my opinion.  If the answer is not right...it should not even be graded until there is a right answer or can't be answered and the points refunded.
