AGP Voltage / New MoBo

Does anyone know what the heck is going on with the intel 845 chipset and the warning about "not supporting certain legacy 3.3Volt agp cards"

I have seen posts that range from:
a) no problem if your card is AGP4X then it's 1.5 Volt
to
b) if your card is not compatible it won't fit the new slot
to
c) check some obscure voltage pin on your board
to
d) there is no way to tell and if you put some older cards in a new slot you will destroy your motherboard.

so what is the right info?
is there any kind of list of "known good/bad cards"
will an older card fry a system?
seems like a REALY BAD hardware design if that is true!!!!!

Grrrrrr..........

I have a Creative GeForce card that I want to use with my new MoBo
it's the (Spelling wrong) Anhililator Pro
32 meg DDR ram that came in the big black box.
original Geforce GPU.

MoBo: intel D845BGSE

I will upgrade the video card, I just wanted to wait a month or two.
