PCI 3.3 Volt Slot - Card choices

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Centroid, Dec 28, 2003.

    Hello. I need to replace a friends video card in an old Gateway P-III 600
    MHz. The specs for the motherboard mention a single AGP slot at 3.3 volts.
    It is listed in these specs:

    http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/INTEL/4000510/400051002.shtml

    Now, when I browse up at NewEgg, there is no real reference to the voltage,
    only the AGP 1/2/4 or 4/8. Does this, then, mean the 1/2/4 *is* 3.3 volt
    and thus the 4/8 *is* not?

    Please advise.

    Thanks,

    Centroid

    spot on

    4/8 is either 1.5v or 0.8V.

    1/2/4 is 3.3v or 1.5v

    Your mb is probably only agp 1/2 so you do need to be careful, especially
    around ATI cards. As the processor is relatively old I would stick with an
    nvidia card, probably an old geforce 4 mx card would be sufficient.
