Have just ordered a new motherboard. ASUS A7N8X-X
I had planned to use a Saphire Radeon 9000pro graphics card.
On checking the board specs,only a 1.5volt graphics card is allowed.Does anyone know how you tell the difference.Neither Saphire or ATI seem to include this info on their sites.
Many thanks,
Phil

All modern cards are 1.5V - only older AGP1 and a few AGP2 cards are 3.3V.

The Radeon 9000 will be fine.

you can tell by the notches on the bottom of the card where it slots into the agp slot,1.5v have 3 notches the middle one meaning its keyed for 1.5v
