I have a question with regards motherboard and graphics card compatibility as I'd like to get a dual monitor setup.
I have an Asrock 775i65GV motherboard and would like to install a Sapphire Technology Radeon 9550 256MB AGP DVI-I VO graphics card.
I've checked the compatibility page at http://www.asrock.com/support/AGP/P4i65GV.html
and apparently the Gigabyte RADEON 9500 graphics card has been tested and passed as okay - however the Gigabyte version is hard to get hold of whereas the Sapphire card is easily available.
Does the architecture between the Sapphire and Gigabyte versions differ that much?
I have asked the ASRock tech dept. though haven't received a response in some time.
Any help greatly appreciated.
