Will an FX5600 work OK on a Chaintech 6ATA2 motherboard? It has a 32-bit AGP
slot (Rev 1.0 compliant).

It only supports AGPx2. Are the FX cards backwards compatible?

Cheers

At least I know there are compatible with AGP4x for sure (that's my
configuration).

Don't know about the 5600, but I know for a fact that the 5200 happily
works at AGP 2X. A friend of mine runs one on an old 440BX board.

if the card has 2 cutouts at PCB on the board (approx. @ 1/3 &2/3 at
AGP connector should run on AGP2x (universal agp connector) w/o
problem ...
