Just got my BB card from the Thanksgiving sale(ordered online). The site stresses several places the card needs to be on irq 11. I have a Radeon now and it's on irq 10. Figure the gf3ti200 is going to go there also. Will this not work? Has anyone had problems with the card not being on irq 11? My irq 11 already has my nic,sbaudigy ieee1394, and pci to usb on it so i'd rather not go moving stuff around as long as it would work on irq 10.

Mine is on IRQ 5 with no problem. Strangely my IRQ 11 are for the Adaptec SCSI card, Promise IDE Controller (motherboard), and the VIA USB Universal Host controller (motherboard). :cool:

I also got the BB deal. When I installed it, all went well but it took over IRQ 5 and knocked out my modem. I went buggy trying to get it to go to IRQ 11 but finally figured out how to do it. I pulled the modem and sound card. When Windows loaded, it put the GF3 into IRQ 11. I then installed modem then soundcard, re-booting after each. Finally everything is where it belongs with the GF3 on IRQ 11. My suggestion; pull out all other PCI cards and install the GF3 first. The soundcard seems to be the ah heck that wants to hog the IRQ assignments.
