Video card voltage


M

MisterSkippy

I have a Matrox 32 meg G450 AGP card which produces exceptional text
with the 955DF monitor and I'd like to keep using it. I'm looking to
upgrade the system with a new Case/ PSU/ mobo/CPU. Most seem to
specify 1.5 volt only for the AGP card. Is there a way to tell if my
card is 1.5 volts? Maxtor site does say and so far an email has gone
unanswered.
TIA

already i have had this same problem:

"Our G-400 and later graphics cards, be it AGP4x or AGP2x, are
compatible with virtually all motherboards.
However, if the motherboard calls for a 1.5V card ONLY to be installed,
the 2x versions of our G400 card may not work properly.

We've identified the G400 boards that support AGP 4x transfer rates with
an additional '4A' in the part number: G4+MDH4A32GB/40.

G400 boards without the '4A' in the part number will be the models that
may not work with 1.5V only motherboards.

Please note that all models of the Marvel G400, G450, G450 eTV, and G550
series are not affected as an agp 2x version of these cards do not
exist."

The G450 is a 1.5/3.3 board. It will switch autoswitch to the correct
voltage.

Here's a better site than Matrox's for getting inof on Matrox cards.

http://www.matroxusers.com/


I also like the Matrox boards for 2D. I'll be using a G450 PCI in my new
rig for 2D work and a new 3D card in the AGP slot for gaming. I'll see
if the people that are telling me the modern 3d cards are just as good
in 2d as a Matrox are right (but I don't think so).

Blow me you malignant, piss-ant cocksucker. I wouldn't have posted if
I could have found a clear explanation. I'm glad school starts soon.
You'll be too busy with Algebra I to be such a shithead.
And, BTW, you momma already did **** me, but I used a rubber and threw
your half-brother away.

Guido's way of saying he has no ****ing clue and that he feels inadequate
because of it (and because of his 2" penis).
