"Ok guys Ray (Preacherman) has been working hard on a few video card reviews using the Epox 7kxa + Tbird config I used in my classic vs Tbird article. He made it through the geforce 1 great with all kinds of benchmarks and was all done with the geforce 1... THEN he pops in the Elsa Gladiac to start testing and what do you know.. 50FPS on Q3 at 640*480 after he told me this I heard a little *click* in my head and remembered how badly the KA7 hated it when I put in the gladiac... I first learned about it over at Riva3d. Heres what Eric at Abit had to say about my KA7 problems. Martin: To allow I/O voltage settings in SoftMenu III, we had to include somthing called a PWM circuit to convert 3.3v from the power supply. It has become apparent that GeForce 2 cards are incompatible with any motherboards using This PWM (including ABIT KA7/100, BE6-II and BF6, as well as ASUS K7V). However, there s a fix: by adding some extra components to the motherboard, we can change the PWM's behavior to prevent the incompatibility. Our engineers started adding those extra components when they learned of this problem. Therefore you won't see the problem on any BE6-II v1.2s, BX133-RAIDs, KT7s, or any other boards made after July 7. Also, it appears that certain power supplies (apparently those that use compatible PWMs) also compensate for and overcome this problem. Anyone experiencing a this problem can contact their local ABIT branch office for an RMA"
