Got this: [Link] off penny arcade – thought I’d blog it before I forgot about it. Feel free to check it out, as I will when I have some more free time. 🙂

w00t – sorta
The “Dell Certified” tech guy just called me. My part is in, and I just set up an appointment for between 3 and 5 pm today. (That would be GMT 22:00 and GMT 24:00 – I think)
That’s the “w00t” — here’s the “sorta”
He thinks the replacement board is exactly the same as what’s in the machine now – AGP 1.0 and all. I knew that was a possiblity, but I was hoping it’d be 2.0 compliant.
He didn’t sound too sure, so I’ll get the machine up and running with the old card, and then see if I can find a diagnostic utility that can tell me if the slot is AGP 1.0 or 2.0 compliant.
At least my machine will be back up and running.

My system is now back up and runnning. Time to find out if this new board is AGP 2.0 compliant.
