Quite confusing.
8X cards are backward compatible with 4X. This is the first time I am reading this type of case.

Its not always matter of pins. I have earlier put in 8X card in 4X slot on some MSI board. It worked well.

Issue almost resolved. All the vendors were so far giving me PCI Express cards. Found one guy who had a stack of 512 MB AGP cards (4x / 8x) on him (Jan 09 import). But he's asking for Rs.3,000 for it which I feel is a bit steep. I say steep 'coz the box has a MRP of Rs.3,600. And as far as computer peripherals go I've seen most things sold at 1/2 the print price. Can anyone help me get current prices ??

Who is the Importer? Importer name would be in the same label that has MRP.

You can try calling them directly.

OTOH, 3k would buy you a Sampron + ASUS Mobo with much better on-board grafix then what you would get with 4X cards.
