AGP Compatibility

  1. Hey Guys. I am getting worried. I ordered the MSI 6800GT graphics card yesterday. I have an MSI K7N2GM-L mobo. I looked at the specs for my mobo, it has an agp 8x/4x 1.5v slot. Do i have to have a 0.8v slot to get a 6800gt to work. Also my mobo says its slot is an agp 8x/4x but it is at 1.5v voltage, i thought for 8x it had to be at 0.8v. I also have a boot logo saying MSI XTREME SERIES - EXTREME THE POWER OF AGP 8X. Surely this mobo will work with a 6800gt. I hope so, or i will be well gutted. Any help, and i would be grateful.

    it's fine. Don't get too caught up in the voltage of yor AGP slot, it will detect what you're putting in there and adjust accordingly.

    Instead,note the compliance nomenclature. You have an AGP 3.0 mobo. The 6800 will work fine in an AGP 3.0 slot. Enjoy
