Power graphics boart on a KT7 ???

  1. Is it any point to put one of the fastest AGP-video-cards on a Abit KT7

    Can the MB handle it anyway? (CPU @~2500MHz)

    Good question. On my KT7A-RAID (v1.3) I've had issues with modern graphics
    cards. I've found that cards with an extra power connector (in my case, a
    5600 Ultra) work OK though.

    As others said, you need a board with a seperate power connector, as the
    AGP slot on the board doesn't have a lot of power to it.
    Max FSB = about 116MHz, so 24x116=2784MHz. Note that you need a
    multiplier unlocked cpu to change the multiplier. see link below.
