I don't think it will work. G200's are AGP 1.0 only, and it sounds like i850 boards are AGP 2.0 only. (This is NOT the same as AGP1x and AGP 2x).

Epox 8KTA3 w/ Duron 850@7.5*133 with Alpha 6035, 256MB Crucial 7E, G400MAX,SBLive!-MP3,Pioneer 10x DVD, Plextor 12/10/32A, IBM 45GB 75gxp, and a Sony 420GS. Running RH7.0 (2.4.5), and Win98SE (when I have to).

If you are willing to do some serious modifications:

Check out a standard 4X cards edge connector - you will find a key-slot roughly an inch from the front of the card that is absent on the Mill 200 and is mechanically preventing it from fitting.

Go find yourself a microgrinder and machine an identical slot on the Mill 200 in the identical position on the card.

Plug in, load the drivers and there you go!

I have 4 of these modded cards running on 845 and 850 based boards because the customer insisted on re-using these cards.
Is this an interesting concept - am I unduly worried
