What model number is it?

http://tw.giga-byte.com/ will tell you most, if not all of what you want to know about your new mobo:)



My Mobo is a Gigabyte GA-7VAXP. It specifically states that the graphiics must be of the 1.5v type. I can't find any reference to voltage on any manufacturers site

Your card is according to Hercules' site a Geforce 2 based card . This is an AGP 2.0 spec card and you are therefore fine ........... the card works at 1.5 v .


Edit : Only some older TNT2 cards and the SIS 315 cards are AGP1.0 and don't support 1.5v . AGP cards newer than those such as yours have no problem . In fact yours may be able to run at the older voltage of 3.3 as well . This won't bother you with your 1.5v board . Most of the latest cards however now support 1.5v only as do most recent motherboards .

Thanks for that!

I looked at all the literature on Graphics cards, I think that it was taken for granted that we all had this technical knowledge.

AGP Card Identification

http://www.azza.com.tw/ftp/specs/MTB-0112-01-00-'AGP%20Card%20Identification'.htm (Copy paste the link)

**EDIT** Welcome to the forums

That's a nice link.

Essentially you can tell by looking at the notches in the AGP connector of the card to identify wether it's 1.5v or 3.3v.

One notch nearest the brack indicates that it's a 3.3v card and will only work in older boards, or boards that have a universal AGP slot.

Two notches indicate that the card can only run at 1.5v

One notch on the side away from the bracket is an AGP Pro model and will require an AGP Pro slot to utilize all of it's rendering power. These are 1.5v as well
