My brother's got an old AST computer. probrably purchased in '98 or '99. I believe the mobo is a version 1 440BX. I've gone thru the archived info and looked at other old sites on this mobo. I just can't seem to figure out if this mobo will work with a GF2 GTS graphics card (made in 2k I think). I'd like to buy him this card if it will work, but if it won't (voltge probs with diff versions of GP slots etc) it would be a complete waste since otherwise I can't use it.

Does anybody have experience with this older stuff? If so please advise. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Also if it won't work, what would that has 32MB of vid ram?

Unless it's a rare defective motherboard, the only cards that WON'T work from either ATI or nVidia are the 9600 series.

BX is AGP 1.0, providing 2x transfers and 3.3v signals. It's as standard as standards can be.

He could probably mount a 9800XT in that system, if he had a big enough power supply! So of course the GTS should work!
