I've had this board for a few months and after much heartache have discovered a MAJOR design flaw.
Apparantly the board won't support the use of a PCI graphics card if you have a PCI-E card in it as well (won't POST). This means that I can't use my PCI card to run my 3rd/4th monitors. ASUS support say: "Motherboard P4GPL-X can't support to use PCI-E and PCI graphics cards at the same time."
I believe that this is a limitation of the Ami BIOS. It's a shame because otherwise this motherboard is superb once I added a PCI RAID card to get enough PATA sockets!
If anyone knows a solution, speak now and you'll be my hero.
It's a major flaw to me! With monitors getting cheaper it's much more common now to have multiple monitors, it's very handy to have enough desktop space for multiple windows especially when playing games.
I think it's bloody poor that ASUS sell a motherboard with PCI slots that you can't use for graphics cards. The flaw will cost me about £130 by the time I've replaced the motherboard and the CPU, not to mention hours of frustration.
Thankfully ASUS support replied to me, in pidgeon English, after 5 days :roll: .
