Default Newer agp cards in an old agp slot

According to eVGA tech support, their AGP cards (specifically their Geforce
FX5200) will not work an AGP 1.0 (3.3V) slot:

"All of our AGP cards support 1.5V only - the 3.3V will not work and yes
you can damage the card and or motherboard."

If that is the case, why do they key (slot) the FX5200 card to allow it to
be inserted into a 3.3V slot?

That support is f***ing stupid....

Because it works? I have two FX5200 cards (one Abit Siluro, one is a HP
card) that worked fine in my old PentiumII with i440LX chipset (AGP
1x/2x)...

Notice that most card manufacturers don't _support_ AGP1x/2x (3.3v) any
more, that means that if you run into problems they won't help you. But
_not_supported_ doesn't necessarily mean _does_not_work_...

Benjamin:

Is your system running AGP 8x card in an AGP 4x slot? I am wondering
if this will work with a Quadrofx 500 agp8x in my Intel845pesv with
agp4xf.

Thanks.

Jim

Their tech support is most likely wrong. As far as I know, the only
Nvidia chips which won't work on 3.3V AGP are those like the 6600GT
where the GPU is PCI Express and uses a HSI chip to convert it to AGP.
