Oops. That "PCI" should read "AGP". Acronym confusion...

That seems to be the same card as the Asus. What is somewhat
confusing is that some pictures show a single VGA output, others a DVI
and VGA. (Mine has VGA and DVI connectors.)

Interesting. I guess I lucked out and never put a really new card in
a really old mobo or vice versa.
I did notice a change in PCI also. A new sk-chip PCI Gigabit ethernet
