    Is It True about geforce and certain MOBO's

    I have a Gigabyte GA-686LX3 MOBO that has the 440LX chip set. I have read somewhere that it does not provide enough power to the AGP slot for a Geforce card. I am not sure weather the article was talking about the Geforce256 or the Geforce2 GTS. Any help here would be greatful.

    Geforce 1 in SDR and DDR uses about twice the power than Geforce 2 GTS Due to later GPU die shrinkage.

    Check the Geforce FAQ for a list of problem mobos if you are getting Geforce 1 plus other stability issues and possible solves.

    The GTS also has other problems especially with Athlon systems.
