Matrox Millennium G450 DualHead as PCI card
Posted on 2006-03-23
I have a Matrox Millennium G450 DualHead graphics card which I want to use with a new motherboard. It is currently in a Pentium III PC, location listed (by Device Manager) as PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0. It is in the larger (brown) rather than white PCI slot.
The Intel literature for the new motherboard, D945PVS (with Pentuim 4) cautions against using an AGP graphics card, rather I should use a PIC Express x16 card.
Matrox site says 2 models: - How do I tell which I have? Does the Matrox Millennium G450 DualHead qualify as a PIC Express x16 card. Can it be used?
(1) AGP 4X interface, compatible with all AGP slots (1x, 2x, 4x and 8x)
(2) 32-bit/33 MHz PCI interface (compatible with all PCI and PCI-X slots)
Thanks for your help, Jim
