Sorry I don't have advice for you, but what I can offer is proof your not 
the only one with these kinds of problems. I have a similar set up to yours, 
but w/ 2 Athlons and a Matrox G450 AGP and that I can say that I've noticed 
the problem as stated in the article you linked to, being that my system 
doesn't like me to 'intensly' push traffic across the AGP slot or oddly 
installs seem to hick-up when dealing with AGP configs...So just to let you 
know your not the only one with those kinds of problems...
