    ...Right now I'm trying to upgrade my old video card to a newer one, on an older system. I want to continue to use the older system.

    PIII-450MHz, Intel 440BX (Tabor3) R3 mobo
    nVidia RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro 16MB (3.3v- 1xAGP)

    I would like to upgrade to something close to:
    GeForce MX 64-128MB

    The problem is finding a video card with support for the 3.3v AGP..?

    I've heard two conflicting suggestions on the matter; one, get the video card and try it(it will probably work but not at the newer specifications), and two, the voltages are different and won't work.

    I want the newer card to have more video memory.

    Thanks

    Since the 440BX uses a 2X AGP slot, you should be able to use a AGP 2X/4x or a 8X card that supports a 2X, 3.3V slot.

    A Nvidia MX card should then work.
