Urgent Advice needed. Radeon 9600 Pro in AGP2X Slot
Jul 24, 2011, 2:21 PM
Hi, let me start by explaining. I bought a Radeon 9600 Pro Card today, (Much like the one shown below)
which I want to use on a motherboard which only has a 3.3v AGP2X Slot.
I noticed that most 9600 Pro cards are 1.5v AGP8X only, so I figured this was a rare find, but now I'm
worried that I might actually "fry" the card by using it in an AGP2X slot.
So my question is, since the card does actually have the AGP2x "cut" in it, will it definitely work?
Am I in danger of frying the card by placing it in the 3.3v Slot?
I'm not sure what brand of card it is (Powercolor, I Think), but it looks identical to this one (Same cooler even),
but the Circuit board is dark brown, not red.
Please let me know what you think.
Wait: It's this exact one!
