Hi guys,

finally I decided to build a more reasonable system for dedicated mythtv 
usage.  I settled on Abit BD7 mobo and P4 2.4Ghz.  I already have a Marvel 
G200-TV and thought I'd use it in the new system.  Luckily, before the parts 
have even arrived I read that the BD7, and all intel chipset 845 mobos for 
that matter, accept only AGP 4x at 1.5v and if you try to plug in an AGP 2x 
card, the mobo will burn!!!

First question, is it really that bad?  Can I upgrade the BIOS or force it to 
accept AGP 2x cards?

Second, if I have to buy a new card, could anyone with a G400-TV tell me if 
that card is 4x at 1.5v, please?

In the worst case scenario, I'll rma my g200 agp and replace it with g200 pci.
