HI,

I have a brandnew ASROCK P4V88+ Mobo for an older P4 (Socket-478). This
Mobo needs an 1,5 volt AGP graphics card. May I use my old MS-8833
Geforce3 MSI graphics card or will I destroy my mainboard? I don't know
if the MS-8833 does support 1,5 volt or is only 3,3 volt. According to
MSI it supports AGP 2x / 4x.

Steven

The AGP slot has plastic keys in it. The video card has slots.
Illegal combinations are prevented by the key and slot system.

There were some violations of the rules. Some older video cards
had the wrong slots cut in them, allowing a 3.3V only video card
to be plugged into a 1.5V only motherboard. The motherboard
Northbridge would be destroyed when that happens. This SIS305
is an example of a card with both slots cut in it, when it
should only have had the 3.3V slot on it.

This guide shows what products can be mixed together.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/agpcompat/agp.html

According to this page, MS-8833 is Geforce 2 MX400:

http://www.msicomputer.com/product/v...833_ms8833.htm

The playtool.com page says your video card is "Universal AGP Card"
and the two slots cut in the middle area of the AGP connector
on the card, confirm that.

The P4V88+ is "VIA PT880" according to this:

http://www.asrockamerica.com/Products/P4v88.htm

Playtool.com says PT880 is "Universal 1.5V AGP 3.0 Motherboard".

The "Practical Motherboard And Card Compatibility"
on playtool.com says your video card is compatible with
your motherboard. So go ahead and use it.
