Gigabyte GA-7VT600 User Manual

Gigabyte ga-7vt600 motherboards: user guide.

 
When you installing AGP card, please make sure the following
notice is fully understood and practiced. If your AGP card has
"AGP 4X/8X(1.5V) notch"(show below), please make sure your AGP
card is AGP 4X/8X(1.5V).
AGP 4X/8X notch
®
Caution: AGP 2X(3.3V) card is not supported by VIA
KT600. You
might experience system unable to boot up normally. Please insert
an AGP 4X/8X(1.5V) card
Example 1: Diamond Vipper V770 golden finger is compatible with
2X/4X mode AGP slot. It can be switched between AGP 2X(3.3V) or 4X
(1.5V) mode by adjusting the jumper. The factory default for this card is
2X(3.3V).
The GA-7VT600(-L) (or any AGP 4X only) motherboards might not
function properly, if you install this card without switching the jumper to
4X(1.5V) mode in it.
Example 2: Some ATi Rage 128 Pro graphics cards made by "Power
Color", the graphics card manufacturer & some SiS 305 cards, their
golden finger is compatible with 2X(3.3V)/4X(1.5V) mode AGP slot, but
they support 2X(3.3V) only. The GA-7VT600(-L) (or any AGP 4X only)
motherboards might not function properly, If you install this card in it.
Note : Although Gigabyte's AG32S(G) graphics card is based on
ATi Rage 128 Pro chip, the design of AG32S(G) is compliance
with AGP 4X(1.5V) specification. Therefore, AG32S (G)will work
fine with VIA
®
KT600 based motherboards.
