Default Video Cards - 3.3v and 1.5v

Hey all,

I'm building a PC and I accidently ordered a video card that is apparently 3.3v (Sapphire Radeon 9600 Atlantis.) The motherboard that I ordered (ASUS K8S-MX) says to only install video cards keyed for 1.5V. However, I've seen this video card installed on other motherboards which said the same thing.

Am I ok to install the video card in this motherboard?

I got a Radeon 9600 Atlantis and a ASUS K8V-X... I don't know if it's a 3.3v...

An easy way to check is to look at the video card itself. Look at where the notch is, if it looks like this
then it is keyed for 3.3v
