XFX GForce 6600GT given to me.

Hi,
I was given a XFX GForce 6600GT(working) AGP video card and wonder if it will work in an older P3 1.4 Powerleap Celeron system I have?
Running Win XP.
Thanks,
Matt

  1. As long as the AGP slot is 3.0 compliant,there should be no issues at all.You can run it on a 2.0 compliant AGP slot,but may cause issues with the card.Has to do with voltages.Nice card by the way.Goodluck.

  3. well first you need to see if it fits (remember there are 3 kinds of AGP ports)

    second, you need to know if your PC is gonna support AGP 4x since this card might not work on 2x.

    third, you need to make sure your power supply can handle it
  4. :cry: Dosen't fit :oops:
    Looks like my AGP slot is not compatible to the AGP slot needed for it.
    Maybe because it has to be AGP 8x or 4x?
    Just guessing here.
    I'll see if I can't find out more if 8x or 4x slot is different than what I have.

    Found my answer here just in case somebody has a similar answer.

    The short of it is I'm SOL..... :(
  6. I kinda new that was gonna happen.

    I too had a Pentium III Slot-1 motherboard which I upgraded to 1.4Ghz celeron with the Powerleap adapter. It had an AGP 2x port that could only handle 3.3v cards and 3.3/1.5v cards, any 1.5v or 0.8v wouldnt fit on it :(

    Sorry to hear that.

    That sucks =/

    If you wanted to continue the giving spirit though... I could put that card to good use... I'd pay shipping if you were willing to pass it on.
  8. If your motherboard support 2x/4x, you can use the AGP8X Card.

    I have an old system, list as follows

    Celeron 1.3 (socket 370)
    ASUS TUSL2-C (intel 815EPT chipset)
    ASUS V9950 Ultra (GeforceFX 5900Ultra AGP8X)

    I'll sure think about it.
    But first I'll talk to my brother-n-law because he will be upgrading to a newer pc. If he gives the old pc to me I want to see if will fit.

    Cool, hopefully it'll work in your brother-n-law's old PC. Best of luck (=
