  1. hi i currently purchase a brand new soyo dragon lite p4x400 .
    and also brand new 512 one stick of ram 2100. i turn the pc on and it last 10 secs and it feeze i try diff ram diff video and still same ****. the only thing i can think is the video card is a agp2x nvidia and the mainboard says 4x/8x 1.5vol only. i supposed to this 2xagp i have is 1.5v and i supposed the mainboard is backwards compatible? any clues ideas opinions all welcome.

    ohh yeah running a p41.8ghz mainboard says it supports up 3.something . this is starting to really annoy me off mainboard has no jumper at all. i like older style better this new type. what is wrong with this nrabd new crap.

    Would it be correct in assuming that while 1.5v slots do not support 1 and 2x AGP cards, older 3.3v AGP slots support 4x and 8x cards?

    Some do, some don't. If it does, it will usually say it does and you have to select the correct setting in the BIOS so it uses the correct voltage. If in doubt, or if you find no such settings, or if it has no indication, it prolly doesn't support 1x, 2x.
