AGP Voltage
4th Nov-2005

Check Motherboard Specifications for AGP Voltages – You can adjust for a [Small Voltage Range] in BIOS under [Advanced Chipset Features] > [AGP VDDQ Voltage]

But I do not think from 1.5V to 3.3V would be possible or ??? –

Also you should check your Power Supply Specs for Amps – Some video cards require a lot – This will separate the [Good] from the [Bad] -

Another factor to consider – The new Video Cards have their own cooling fans – Try to keep the PCI expansion slot nearest the AGP slot open – to let Fan some – [Breathing Room] –
