  1. I want to get a GeForce 6800GT but I am not sure if my mobo will support it.
    My mobo is the ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe. In the manual it says it will not support 3.3v cards but I am not sure if this card is 3.3v or not. If anyone knows if this will work please post and let me know. Planning on buying the card tommorrow.

    If that card is agp 8x/4x it should be 0.8v.

    Thats what I can't seem to find out. What kind of power is required from the mobo for this card?

    That seems a bit off. My x800 reqiures 350, and i was always under the assumption that the 6800 was much more power hungry then the x800.

    I would say 350...but whatever you get make sure that doesnt use the peak wattage as the advertised watts. (aka, cheap brands)
