Hi, i've recently purchased a geforce3 ti 200 (visiontek). This vid card is 2.0 compliant so my question
is:
could I use it in my mobo (Acorp 6via82p - Via apollo pro 133 chipset) wich has a 1x/2x agp slot (1.0 compliant)?
Coul I fry the mobo or the VC because of the voltage of my agp slot (3.3v)?

please answer me, I don't want to break my new video card

Thanks

I asked that because i've read in another forum that someone fried his mobo because he tried to put a geforce3 in a 1.0 agp slot. Is this true?

Thanks for the reply

geforce 3 will work with 3.3v. but, double check whether you really have 3.3v. some agp 1x/2x are ~5.0v.
