Hi everyone. I'm new to this so please be kind. Here's my situation. I bought the Radeon x1950 video card which is PCI express. My board does not have a PCI express slot. I need a new board but I don't know what to buy. The board I need must take my current chip, memory (6 sticks) and the x1950 video card. Here is a list of what I do have:

Motherboard:
Gigabyte Technology
Model: 8ANXP-D
Max Memory: 4GB
64bit chip set
This board has 6 memory slots that I have 512 sticks in.

Memory:
6 sticks of Kingston 512mb DDR2-SDRAM

Video Card:
Radeon x700 pro (PCI)

Processor:
Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHZ
Socket/Slot: 775
Upgrade Interface: 478

If I could get a consensus on what board to buy I'll do it. I have been looking on Newegg but can't find a PCI Express board that has 6 memory slots. Please help. I can't wait to fire up this new video card and play Microsoft Flight Simulator X Deluxe! I'm a pilot working on my Instrument Rating. I'm less than a month away from taking the practical test.

Am I approaching this question from the wrong angle? Why am I not getting any help?

What do you mean? I thought the GA-8ANXP-D has a PCIe x16 slot.

I don't think the board I'm running now has PCI Express. I put the new card in the slot and the board rejected it. I think it's just plain PCI. It's a 3 or 4 year old board.

Ok so my board DOES have pci express (thanks John). The x1952 is new from newegg. When I put it in and power up I get the motherboard beeping at me. I think it's the power supply. I'm starting over. Wish me luck.

Was it the power supply? If so, was it underpowered or was it dead/dying?
