video graphics card/motherboard compatibility

  1. Hello, this is my first time posting on this site.

    I was having problems with a system I just built and think it might be that the video card is too new for the motherboard.

    Here are the spec sites for my motherboard and video card:

    Video Card: click here

    Motherboard: click here


    The only thing that I think might be an issue is the video card runs at 333 MHz and the motherboard runs at 266 MHz FSB. (although I was under the impression that this was okay as long as the motherboard, processor, and memory all run at the same FSB)

    Thank you for any help you can give! :)

    Your board and card should be OK, your card supports AGP 8x/4x/2x and your board supports AGP4x/2x/1x so they should run together.
    The reference you made to the memory is nothing to worry about because the AGP only runs at 66MHz assuming you haven't overclocked anything.
    What problems are you having with your machine exactly?

    agreed, you should be able to use these two devices together. please provide more information about the issues you are experiencing.

    Thanks,
