PLEASE NEED HELP!
im from argentina and i've just bought a BIOSTAR U8668-D board for Intel..... And the vendor told me to NOT PUT old cards on the AGP Port because it can Burn the motherboard.... I hav an Evilking VooDoo 3 16mb AGP.....
Is that true?
please i need to know.....
Yes my friend i am afraid this is true.The new motherboards have 1,5V AGP slot and the old video cards requires 3,3V AGP slot to run.So be careful and i think you should not put this Voodoo 3 to your new motherboard.
Ok..I see that new mb and old agp might not work.. BUT what about an old mb and new agp? Provided it meets spec of mb?
I have an asus p2b w/pii 400. The mb has a 2x agp port. Now I'm trying to extend the use of my existing system until I can afford a new one. So I purchased an asus agp 7100 vid card which is 4x, 2x, 1x compatible. Do you think there will be a problem? Computer store tech says probably not. To make a long story short...I went thru (2) pci powercolor/ati vid cards in the last (2) days. For some reason after about 15min to 2 hrs I get verticle lines on the mon. Reboot will fix it but only for a short while. Computer store tech said that the ati card is probably not compatible w/ the old p2b mb.
My existing agp card is matrox 2x g400. It has never missed a beat but only has 16mb mem.
I haven't installed the new card yet thinking maybe my power supply is causing problems...
What do you think?
Sorry for long winded post!
I already answered your other post, and card except the 9600 series.

He may think it so, but if he researched he could answer the question himself. Coming off as a warning to others you write <b><font color=red>*Im-Pucking-Fortant*</font color=red></b>!, not if you just can't be bothered to do some research.

Do you think a computer not working is not important? Your post was about not seeing why it was important. He didn't want to ruin his computer. That is important. I never said anything about research, BUT, we dont know if he did research or not.
