This is giving me a headache. Trying to upgrade the video card on an aging system.
So i have heard of voltage irregularities being the main problem with video cards. So im trying to find what voltage my mother board supports through the agp slot. it says when i look at the documentation that its
AGP connector size 172 pins
AGP connector data width (maximum) 32 bits
AGP bus protocols 4x/2x modes at 1.5 V

so this means that i mean looking for a video card that has the same voltage 1.5? and would a card that is 8x and 64 bits work?
also i have heard agp 2.0 and 3.0 how do i find out which one i am using?

The irregularities come from a failing or cheap power supply more likely than not
