Good to hear you got a GF on the way.
And careful with the file tool on that AGP connector.

It is a Galaxy with both notches.
So I do not need any major mod apart changing a failed heatsink.

I confirm that GeForce 6800 GT/Ultra works well with modded AGP connector.
For example this fancy SDI version of Quadro FX4000 which is the pro equivalent of GF 6800 Ultra works just fine - https://www.petershipkov.com/temp/retro_pc_im … adro_fx4000.jpg

I might try this mod with a variant of the 6800 that does not have the missing gold fingers....

Meanwhile I am testing the 440bx with the Quadro fx3000.
The card is power hungry, as you can see from the warning attached.
I changed the molex plugged on the card and it went ok, but I am sure it is not a faulty molex, because with another motherboard and the same power cord all was fine.
Plus, the motherboard now won't recognize all the 4 banks of 256mb, but only 2.

I got around 6000points in 3dmark01 (P3 700mhz). Is it ok?

Just received the Galaxy 6800xt, 350mhz gpu - 200mhz mem (400).

It perfectly works on 440bx

Here with P3 700mhz, I got more or less the same 3dMark01 numbers I had with fx3000...
