Intel Desktop Board D850GB
Proccesor: Intel Pentium 4/ 2 GIG
Ram: RDram/256 MB
Hard-Drive: 60 Gig. Seagate/Barracuda
Video Card(current): geForce 2 MX 400 family. 64 MB
Monitor: AOC 17' Flat Panel Display 75 Hrtz

A couple questions, if you please.
What does the monitors "hertz" have to do with the video image?

Second, I have purchased a Geforce FX family video card, around the 5700 line. Will this card be compatible with my system, seeing as the system bus is 8x?

I checked Intel's website and it listed only 1x,2x,4x compatibility. But, then I wondered if that was written before 8X even existed. And, does anyone know the voltage of this particular card? As, the board can handle a 1.8 volt. I believe.

Thanks, in advance.
