PCI Dividers, are used to keep your PCI bus, and you AGP bus in spec. For example, most dividers today are 1/4 of your FSB. So if your FSB is 133mhz (or 266 DDR) than you PCI bus is 33 Mhz.
The AGP buses are 1/2 of the FSB buses. PCI dividers mainly come into play when you're overclocking. The higher you overclock, the higher the PCI and AGP buses become. This only happens if your overclock with your FSB, this doesn't happen when you use multiplier overclocking.
So PCI and AGP dividers are used to keep those buses in spec, so they work like they're supposed too.
