Heard in a couple places that the K7VT4APro board has some voltage issues with it's AGP. From what I've been seeing when playing 3D graphic games is seeming to be true. Quite often getting screen flashing leading to screen/system freeze, adnormtormination of program, stop of display driver.

The only thing I changed in my system recently has been the motherboard, with the last one there was no issues. But other then 3D gaming..or at lesat in one game there is no problems.

Well I only changed the motherboard in this config..all other hardware is the same as I had before which I had no problems with. The last motherboard was and ECS K7S5A.

----

Edit, found my vid cards install disk which had a hardware montering app for the vid card. It shows that it's getting 1.7v for the VDDQ and 3.25 for the AGP bus. Both I know from looking at a few sites that is too high to be default.
