When you installing AGP card, please make sure the following
notice is fully understood and practiced. If your AGP card has
"AGP 4X notch"(show below), please make sure your AGP card is
AGP 4X (1.5V).
Caution: AGP 2X card is not supported by Intel
845(GE/PE) /
®
845(E/G) / 850(E). You might experience system unable to boot up
normally. Please insert an AGP 4X 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-8PE800(-L) (or any AGP 4X only) motherboards
might not function properly, if you install this card without switching the
jumper to 4X(1.5) 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-8PE800(-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 Intel
845(GE/PE) /845(E/G) / 850(E) based motherboards.
