Putting together a rendering workstation and the motherboard I have has an AGP Pro 110 slot.  Looking on eBay, I can get a 3DLabs Wildcat III 6110 for under $200.  The card spec says its and AGP Pro 50 card.  Will there be any harm installing it into an AGP Pro 110 slot?  I read somewhere that it will just draw the 50 of the possible 110 watts that the slot provides, are 110 slots backwards compatible?  Are there different pin sets between the 2 slots, is there an extra segment of pins that the APG Pro 50 will just not use.  Any help will be appreciated.
