Let me preface by saying this might be a really stupid question, but I want to be "safe" so I'm going to break down and ask it anyway.
Merri is building a new computer and randomly gets parts for it. It will be at least another two months (if not much longer) before it's complete enough to use.
Her old computer is slowly dying, and a few weeks ago her video card went out. Being the wonderful, awesome person that I am, I let her take the card out of my desktop. Now I don't have a video card, and we really can't afford to buy even a cheap one. My laptop can't handle jack ****, and I'd really like to get the desktop running again.*
Anyway, she got a new video card for Christmas, and I'm wondering if I can use it in my desktop. It's an 8x AGP Asus card. I do have an AGP slot ... my concern is that the card is so new and "powerful" and my machine is old and might kill it somehow.
*I'm thinking of playing EQ again. Yes, I know, I'm going to ****.
P.S. I've heard talk of a "tech forum" for these questions, but that would involve me leaving THIS forum. Sorry, no can do.
