I intend to upgrade my MoBo but the specs for my choice say that it supports 1.5v display cards only. My display card, an Asus GeForce 4 MX 440-8X, makes no mention of voltages. I didn't know different voltages were involved with display cards. My previous card was AGP 4X and it worked OK. Are AGP 8X cards different in this respect? Can anyone enlighten?
Many thanks for your interest. My graphics board is an Asus V9180 Magic, and nowhere on the retail box or the printed manual is the vital spec of working voltage mentioned. In fact it says "Complete AGP Interface Support," and that the AGP 8X slot is Bus Standard. Likewise, the PCA's Buying Advice on graphic cards has nothing to say on the subject, neither does the Technofile feature on MoBos in the April 2003 issue. It's all very puzzling. I'll probably still go for the Gigabyte GA-7VAX from my local dealer. If it doesn't work I can always return it. Thanks again.
