Default Geforce 6600GT question

is the voltage on an AGP 4x/8x Geforce 6600GT 1.5? my motherboard only supports 1.5 and 3.3 will ruin it so i just want to make sure. i think i'm goin to get this MSI Geforce 6600GT

dun worry about the voltages, they take care of themselves, what you're interested in is the AGP version/speed, it is an AGP8x card, you have AGP8x mobo, buy it & feel the love of Hi-Res gaming!

i agree with the tobes lol the 6600 GT will probbly be the last for the AGP...cause of the PCI E

I just upgraded myself really happy with it i saw at least 30% boost in gaming and i can do high on quake 4 on default so that is nice ^.^

Yea it's kinda funny, within less than 6 months, AGP has been pretty much decimated.
