There is a problem with the combination of older motherboards and newer AGP graphic cards. This is because some of the early AGP motherboards used a linear regulator to control the power supply to the AGP slot. Linear regulators can supply at most 2.5 A of current while the switching regulator used on newer motherboards can supply up to 6 A at 3.3 V. When these motherboards with linear regulators were produced the average consumption of a graphic card was 1 to 2 A. Making a supply of 2.5 A more then sufficient. Since then graphic cards have developed and today the average consumption is 4 to 5 A. This is no problem for the motherboards using a switching regulator, but those older ones with a linear regulator run into problems such as overheating, burnouts and lockups. If your board has a linear regulator then you WILL have problems.
