Question
I know AGP Slots look like PCi Slots.

And AGP Slots are Brown in color.

But is AGP 1x 2x 4x 8x all look the same?

I was on google looking for pictures but I can only find one but nut all of them.

Thanks for your help.

Answer
The slots don't all look alike. I think they are the same length, but have a slot at different places within.
In this picture http://flylib.com/books/3/171/1/html/2/images/0789730626/graphics/04fig04.gif look for the slot that has 7 and 2 and the other that has 6,8,3. If you go down to 4 it is an AGP Pro slot (these did not stay around long).
