. If your AGP card has "AGP 4X/8X(1.5V) notch"(show below), please make sure your AGP card is AGP 4X/8X(1.5V).
AGP 4X/8X notch
Caution: AGP 2X card is not supported by SiS® 648/648FX. You might experience system unable to boot up normally. Please insert an AGP 4X/8X card. Example 1: Diamond Vipper V770 golden finger is compatible with 2X/4X mode AGP slot. It can be switched between AGP 2X(3.3V) or 4X(1.5V) mode by adjusting the jumper. The factory default for this card is 2X(3.3V). The GA-8SG800/GA-8S648FX (or any AGP 4X only) motherboards might not function properly, if you install this card without switching the jumper to 4X(1.5) mode in it. Example 2: Some ATi Rage 128 Pro graphics cards made by "Power Color", the graphics card manufacturer & some SiS 305 cards, their golden finger is compatible with 2X(3.3V)/4X(1.5V) mode AGP slot, but they support 2X(3.3V) only. The GA-8SG800/GA-8S648FX (or any AGP 4X only) motherboards might not function properly, If you install this card in it. Note : Although Gigabyte's AG32S(G) graphics card is based on ATi Rage 128 Pro chip, the design of AG32S(G) is compliance with AGP 4X(1.5V) specification. Therefore, AG32S (G)will work fine with SiS® 648/648FX based motherboards.
