Technically yes should you nooooooooo. Gpu mining has not been profitable even on the most efficient best cards out there for a good while. These cards are beyond not efficient for mining all you'd do is lose money.

No.

 

Unless your electricity is free, mining with - decent -  cards is barely profitable, IF it's profitable at all. 

 

Also, for most relevant coins, you need video cards with at least 4 GB of memory onboard, AND which support OpenCL or Cuda, and are reasonably powerful.

 

These days, the lowest worth using would probably be RX460 / RX560  or GT 1050  (and similar in levels of performance)

Mining with GPUs is dead.

AGP cards are not useless.

They're useful pretty much only if you need/want to make a vintage pc, and play some games on hardware of that time. 

Though it would have to be pretty far back, I'm thinking Socket 478, Socket A , Socket 754, 939 (these already had pci-e but some companies made hybrid agp/pci-e)... 

 

It's a small period, a few years and then you're getting into pci-e slots..

also not very likely sadly. GPU's this old/obsolete usually get removed from the F@H whitelist.

so you could put it in a system and install F@H, but the servers won't assign any WU's to them.
