    :rolleyes: Hi

    This is the first time I have installed a motherboard, and also the first time I have installed a CPU.

    The first problem I have encountered is concerning the AGP 8x graphics card.

    The motherboard 'caution section' states;

    Do NOT use a 3.3V AGP card on the AGP slot of this motherboard!
    It may cause permanent damage!

    MY QUESTION

    How can I tell / find out what the voltage is, of my grapics card?

    I have looked at the cards printed circuit - and the manuals on the CD but no joy.

    GRAPHICS CARD
    The graphics card is a: Leadtek Winfast A360 128MB and 256MB
    Printed on the card: LR2982 - PCB Rev: B
    AGP 8X

    MOTHERBOARD
    ASRock - 4Core Dual - SATA2

    Any help or advice welcome.

    Thank you in advance- Stephen
