Everyone's gotta be a wiki and full of hearsay, hence why I don't post here that much. C'est la vie.
If you are referring to my last comment about AGP voltage , I would like to point out that what I wrote is corroborated by http://www.playtool.com/pages/agpcompat/agp.html , which is the very link that you yourself posted but who's information about "Radeon 95xx/9600/9700/9800" AGP voltage you contradicted in that same post of yours .
I don't really care. I done with the arrogance being displayed on this site. Adios. The link was used to inform him of why certain graphics cards won't work, not as a means to be placed on a pedestal.
It is not my intention to, so to speak, pour gasoline on a fire, but please consider that
a) I have personally used a Radeon 9700 in a 440BX board (Asus P3B-F most recently) and I can confirm that it works just fine with 3.3V AGP (albeit running at AGP 1x is required in my setup for stability, but that is a different issue). I also recall testing, a long time ago, a Radeon 9800 variant that was properly keyed for 3.3V AGP and posted fine in a 440BX board and worked in DOS (did not doe any Windows testing at the time).
b) If someone links to a site while contracting the information it presents, it is hardly unexpected that someone will point it out . EDIT : This should not be taken personally, as it is, IMHO, a perfectly normal reaction to contradictory information .
c) It is a bit confusing for me that you complain about "hearsay" when that is essentially what our experiences (yours, mine and everyone else's included) are to others . We all read, formulate hypotheses, run tests, take measurements and eventually come to conclusions which we share online. Some of us may be more methodological than others but, in the end, no one is impervious to making erroneous assumptions or making mistakes . Exchanging about our findings, experiences and reference materials is how we all learn, correct misconceptions and eventually (hopefully) come to some kind of consensus . I don't expect anyone to believe everything I write without question and also believe that I am right in applying the same analytical and critical perspective to what others write .
I am saddened to read that you were somehow offended by previous exchanges, but I really do not understand where you see arrogance in all this .
That said, you are obviously under no obligation explain yourself. If, however, you do choose to do so constructively, it is my hope that any ill will, perceived or otherwise, and any hard feelings will be put to rest . If you choose to simply leave, as you suggest you will, I extend my best wishes to you in pursuit of your retro interests , wherever they may take you .
Cheers and no hard feelings on my end .
