I have a Asus A7V133 Socket-A KT133A ATX motherboard and I was looking at purchasing a TI4200 video card and putting it into this machine. Is there anything I need to worry about when upgrading the video card? This is what Anandtech had to say about the motherboard.

"The VIA 8363A North Bridge sits right between the CPU socket and the AGP Pro slot. It is the core of the KT133A chipset that provides all the major features of the board including official support for 100 / 133MHz FSB and memory buses, as well as AGP 4X support. Just like most of the recent ASUS motherboards, the A7V133 is equipped with an AGP Pro slot. Save for a few very high end graphics cards, the extra power carrying cabilities of AGP Pro are rarely required. The AGP Pro slot is a universal slot, which means it is not keyed specifically for 1.5V or 3.3V cards, so you can install almost any current AGP card in the slot."

Thanks for everyone's help.

if you have a agp pro slot, make absolutely sure that you stick your agp 4x card in the proper way. i THINK the card sit fit right in the middle and the slot will uncovered on both sides. to make it easier dont remove the sticker on both sides.

In case you need a testimonial, I ran my AOpen GF4 Ti4200 on an ASUS A7V133 until a couple of weeks ago (upgraded to a DDR mobo) and it was fine. You shouldn't have any trouble. :D
