Default Will this graphics-card blow up?

I just went ahead of myself and bought a graphics card,
a GForce 4 64 MB DDr from PixelView without knowing if it fits my computers AGP ports voltage rating, 3.3 V.

It's an older Asus motherboard, GA 6BXE - Version 2.0. I'm pretty certain it's 3.3 Volt, but I don't know the GForce cards current-rating.

I've seen on other motherboard little notes on how you SHOULDN'T connect cards with lower voltages. Does anyone know which voltage my card is? And if not, what the whorst case scenario would be if I just plug it in?

Best Regards,
Chris

Err.. this is exactly the best place to ask a question like that.

GeForce4s are AGP 4x, make sure the motherboard supports 4x and you'll be fine. If it only supports 1x/2x don't use it.

Hey Guys,

It worked fins just as you said. Using my computer to drive a widescreen crt now. DVD:s are fine, only the desktop doesn't look as good as videos.
