    I decided to upgrade my 32meg video card to a 256meg, but looking through the manual it says the following:

    I thought everything was golden since it's an Asus K8V SE. :ugh: Fuck now I don't know what to do. I'm already on a tight budget and I don't want to pay for another motherboard.. anyone know the type of cards I can get? Or is it worthless to even try?

    32-> 256 :hsugh: why not go to a 128 since you obviously bought a budget mobo in the first place?

    the K8V is not a budget mobo -- it's a mainstream board.

    1.5V vs. 3.3V is a requirement of ALL new mobos.

    get a 4x or 8x AGP card and you'll be fine.
