    I have purchased an Asrock K7S8X R3.0 motherboard
    It states in the installation guide that a 3.3v AGP graphics card must not
    be plugged into the AGP socket
    I have a ATI Radeon 9500 card which I believe is a 3.3v card, does this mean
    it is now unusable or are there ways to overcome this
    I also have a Riva TNT2 M64 32Mb card but do not know if this would be
    compatible
    If neither are compatible any suggestions what would be
    Please help
    Thank you

    The ATI Radeon 9500 is *not* a 3.3v card. It is AGP 4x/8x capable,
    which is 1.5v

    Sorry. That's 1.5v/.8v (4x/8x).
