I did indeed read the manual, and recall the part on "AGP Protection Technology - With AGP Protection Technology implemented, this motherboard will autimatically detect the voltage of AGP card and prevent your chipsets from being burnt out."
I guess i just didn't interpret "prevent" as not powering on. I was hoping for some subroutine would start automatically that adjust the settings to correct for any variables and optimizes performance. I guess i watch too much Star Trek.
The card certainly works on the old system and on one of the bigger chips there is a sticker that reads "V1.21" which i assumed meant 1.21 volts. Then again, it could mean version 1.21. The manual for the Aopen motherboard says not to use cards with a 3.3 voltage. I tried to download the technical specifications for the graphics card from Sonic Blue but it is not available on their website, and the customer service line won't support it.
I'm going to assume that it is the wrong voltage card. And Aopen prevented my new rig from blowing up in a ball of fire. I'm off to Central Computer.
