Ive had some problems with my agp slot on my previous mobo. I am getting a new one and it says that it doesn't support 3.3v cards. Which cards are at this voltage? I have a 9800pro. This should work right? Also, what is AGP Pro 50? It says it supports this, i've never heard of it. Thanks for any input.

AGP Cards that use 3.3v are older types, like a TNT and the like. Most newer cards use 1.5v, which is the AGP 8x standard.

AGP 50 is a workstation variation that gives the videocard more power than a normal AGP slot can. AGP50 cards generally don't need the extra power connector that R360/NV35 cards do.

Cool! Thanks for the info. So If it supports .8v and 1.5v all cards i buy in the future should work right?

Yes. No one makes 3.3v cards anymore.


IIRC, the last 3.3v card was the Voodoo5.

The cards may SUPPORT 3.3v but they aslo support 1.5v. The cards only use 3.3v when they are plugged into AGP 1x or 2x slots that only push 3.3v. It's called backwards compatibility.

true, I was hoping you'd find it amusing that a DX9 card would even run in 1x,2x :)
