Help with a PixelView GeForce FX5200 128MB GC

I have just purchased a P4 system and intend to put a PixelView GeForce FX5200 128MB Graphics Card in it to take over from the onboard graphics. When I opened the case up to do so the AGP slot had a sticker on which says "Do not use a 3.3V AGP card in this slot".
Despite checking out my card on Google I cannot work out whether or not it is a 3.3V card and obviously I'm not going to fit it and see. If anyone could advise me on this I would be most grateful

I believe it should be Ok to fit. The warning refers to old graphics cards whivh use the 3.3v. Your card is a new one. As said should be OK. I am supplying this as info. not as advise so can't be held responsible should things go belly-up, although I don't think so.
