Default Identifing AGP

Is there a visable difference between a 3V agp card and a 1.5V agp card.

I have recently purchased a mother board that supports only 1.5V Graphics cards on its AGP port. I want to know if the card i currently own will be compatible

The length of the slot is the indicator. Though I cant remember which one is longer

In most cases, it won't fit at all. The 1.5V slot is "notched" at a different location from a 3.3V port (AGP 2x/1x).
