I have an Epox 8kta3+ with the kt133a chipset. I've been looking long and hard at upgrading my voodoo 3 3000 to an 8500LE with 128mb. Are there known issues with the chipset and this card? Would it be a safer play to go for the gf4 4200, does that have any issues with this mb?


Thanks.

I don't know about that borad per say but the normal Radeon 8500 runs perfectly fine on my Iwill KK266-R which is a KT133a board.

Installed an R8500 on many KT133A based motherbiards, never had any real issues as yet.
I have heard the R8500 doesn't get along well with the Epox 8KHA+, as linked above... though supposedly that's fixed with the latest motherboard BIOS.

Thanks for the replies guys. I have had to put it off for a bit, since I'm going to be taking a trip in a few weeks, but that should help me on the price thing. When I get back, and get some money together, I might pick one up at Fry's try it out, and see if it will work, then return it and buy one online.
