The motherboard boots on an old PCI-card but doesn´t boot with the Powercolor Radeon X300SE (R37L-SC3B) 128MB. Is a PCI-E card. The strange thing is that my friend claims that it ever worked. You have any suggestion what I best do? I don´t have an other motherboard with PCI-E to test the card.

several things come to mind. If you are positive the6850 is good then my first guess would be your power supply. the specs for this card says it needs a500 watt or greater p.s. if the p.s. is good then check your Pci slot to verify it is a pcix 16, nd lastly this card also requires 1 gig system memory. try this and let me k now if it doesn't work
Any old standard PCI graphics card will work with this board as long as you stay within the power levels your PSU can put out. You can not put a PCI-E or PCI-Express card on this board because you lack the necessary slots. Make sure you double check the interface before purchasing another graphics card.
You must enter the bios menu and set the video controller to boot to the PCIe first. Save and exit the bios. The proper orders when installing a PCI-E card is as follows; before you install you’re new video card onto the motherboard. Install the graphics cards software. Than shut down the system. Install the video card. Boot system and enter the bios menu. Go to and open Advance. Open North Bridge Configuration See page 4-23 in manual. Internal Graphics Adapter should be set to [PEG/PCI] Internal Graphics Mode Select should be set to [Disabled] PEG Port Control set to [Auto] Save you're changes and exit the bios. You should be able to boot to you're PCI-E graphics card now.
Your motherboard have an AGP 4X port, you can easy upgrade whit that card since it is an APG-card. Not sure tough that your motherboard can handle all that DDR3 power witch come with the card but im sure u will notice a big improvment.
I think that a cheaper card with 512 Mb DDR2 will give u the same results.
