Howdy,

I'm going to try to plug a VisionTek Xtasy 6564 (GeForce3 Ti200) that requires an AGP 2.0 compliant slot into an AGP 1.0 complaint slot on an Asus P2B motherboard.

What will happen?  Will the card work normally?  Will it not work at all?  Will it even fit in the slot?  Will this video board only work on a so-called AGP 2.0 slot or will it be backwards compatible on the 1.0 slot?

Thanks!

My guess would say that it will not work.  The slots tend to be backwards compatible as long as you are using the same architecture.  The cards, on the other hand, would require a slot that can deliver the designed specs of the card.  As a matter of fact, you could damage the card or mobo doing this.  Don't even try it.  Replace the mobo with one that will do the job.

The keying of the cards is different, and you may not be able to plug the new card into your AGP 1.0 slot. But if you were able to, you'd fry the video card, as it is designed to run at a different voltage than that supplied by your current AGP slot. Don't attempt it, unless you like the smell of burnt electronics.

This is an easy one to close.

The key element of the question is AGP 2.0 (PRO)card to
AGP 1.0 slot.

Answer - Don't do it. Recommended by both Experts.

Clarifications:

AGP 1.0 is a shorter slot and may or may not be keyed

AGP 2.0 slot is longer, may or may not be keyed, and provides for more path for graphic tranfer.  SOME slots MAY accept 1.0 cards but are specific slot design dependent.

The naked eye can see the overall problem, the trained technician, informed user can see the backwards 2 to 1 problems and associated conflicts.

Outcome - Award equal points to each Expert and PAQ question.
