    Quick question: Can I stick an 8x GeForce Ti4200 in a Asus BH7 motherboard with only a 4x AGP slot or am I going to have a new trophy for the wall o' cooked hardware?

    I am 99% sure that you could do that :O) Say you have a 4x AGP card, you can stick it in your mobo, even if your mobo only supports 2x. So then it will just run it at 2x :O) Why bother getting 8x though if your motherboard only supports 4x? A 4x ti4200 card would be significantly cheaper than the 8x you know!

    BTW: I was gonna get a ti4200 card, but I decided on this Geforce 3, which is practically the same thing :afro: (Me and my friend benchmarked UT03, and we got about the same FPS; give or take 2 or 3. With my Geforce 3 ti200 128DDR, and his Geforce 4 ti4200 128 DDR!)

    Just because something say's Geforce 4 doesn't mean it's good, contrary to popular belief :eek:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    My real question is the voltage difference. The 8x runs at 0.7v or 1.5v and the 4x runs at 1.5v. Will the GF4 Ti4200 run at 1.5v without meltdown?

    So long as the mobo and video card have one common protocol (4x in your case) then ya'll have no probs with it. ;)

    Thanks, after more searching I found on another website that the Ti4200 supports all three standards.

    Thanks again; I knew I would get a good answer out of this forum. Always have, always will.
