i'm thinking about buying one of these click here ASROCK 939DUAL

i've just read the manual for this board and come across something that worries me , the manual says"Please do NOT use a 3.3V AGP card on the AGP slot of this motherboard! It may cause permanent damage! For the voltage information
of your AGP card, please check with the AGP card vendors."

i'm using a nvidia fx5950 ultra at the moment and dont really want to buy a new gfx card.

can i use this gfx card on this board

thanks

Yes is the answer.

The only cards I know of that require 3.3V are the very old AGP 1.0 standard cards.....your Fx5950 ultra is an AGP 3.0 (AGP8x) card and runs at 1.5V.
