Default MSI BX Master & FX5900XT compatibility.

Yes it should but it will only work as an AGP 2x card and also no matter
what cpu you have in there it will not be able to keep up with the card, so
donet expect any massive performance boost unless the card you have in it
just now is especially old. I'm running a FX5700 in an older dual cpu IBM
intellistation and it works fine but 3d performance is not really any better
than the Quadro 2 pro i took out of it although it doeas allow me to play
nicer looking dx8 games now.

Cheers

MSI BX Master... that's based on the Intel 440BX chipset? The FX5900XT may
or may not work on it, due to different signaling voltages (3.3V vs 1.5V).
To be sure, find a photo of the card online and make sure the notches on the
AGP connector match up with your mobo's slot.

Well then, find a detailed picture of the mobo (maybe on MSI's web site) and
make sure the slot matches up with your card's notches. :-)

Well I am trying to sell the Card to a Mate that has the MSI BX Master.

Mine Gigabyte FX5900XT AGP 3.0, has the 3.3v & 1.5v Keys , the MSI BX
Master MoBo card shows the Key for 3.3v..

If the keys line up then the card will fit, as simple as that. A good
resource for AGP voltage information is (surprise, surprise) ATi's web site.
Go to https://support.ati.com/ and enter article number "18872" in the
search box in the left menu. There are a lot of pictures and diagrams
illustrating the various keyed slots.

If you take the Info here into consideration, its then a Universal card..?

Huh? This is a link pointing to the recent batch of defective Sony CCDs,
used in several manufacturers' cameras.
