Graphics card voltages!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am about to buy a BFG GeForce 7800 GS OC 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/DVI (AGP) from overclockers. I have a AS Rock K7VT4A PRO motherboard. In my instruction manual for my motherboard states that "Do not use a 3.3v AGP card as this can cause serious damage. Can I use the above graphics card? Or is it the wrong voltage?

You should be able to, and you also have to have a good PSU.

Recently got a 580w power supply. Was unsure if I had to alter AGP voltages in my BIOS?

If your mobo has an AGP slot that complies with either the 4x or 8x standard, you're all set. Make sure you have a quality power supply, though. Probably at least 450W, and 36A on the +12V rail if you have one rail or 18A-20A on each rail if you have more than one. Take a look at fortron source (FSP Group) if you need a new unit.
