what is the card doing?


you mean the card won't turn on? or the scareen comes on and windows freezes?

sounds like a power problem if no picture

can't see anything how to set the agp settings.. by right there should be display on monitor.

450W psu should be sufficient (its true power psu)

Check if the misbehaving MB is overclocked, especially on the AGP clock. For that matter kill any overclocking you have.

Make sure the power connector that goes from the PSU to the X800 is good, don't daisy chain it with other drives or cards. Give it it's own molex direct from the PSU.

Make sure the X800 is seated properly in the MB socket, and that the monitor cable attaches fully. Misaligned case could cause a connector seating problem. Check with power off or smoke can result.

^^ thanks for the suggestion but i've tried all settings. The board is NEW so i doubt there is any overclocking there. But one thing is that i saw AGP2.0 (2x/4x)and AGP3.0 (8x) on the CMOS settings. I plug in a AGP2.0 card and i can see the settings but not the AGP3.0 settings ( have to get a AGP3.0 card to see the settings ) IS there some kind of jumper settings that might be causing all this problem?

Most newer cards need extra power and have a power input, be sure that is plugged in. I have seen my first one on a intel mobo where you actually had to plug a standard power connecter for a disk device into the mobo next to the graphics card slot to power the graphics card in addition to the mobo power.

Look next to the four pin aux. power to see what I mean. The board even had a warning that operating some cards w/o this plugged in could damage the board or processor.
