I had been running my X1800XT (ATI) in my P5WDG2-WS with a Pentium D 840 for quite some time now with no issues...
I upgrade to a P5WDG2-WS Professional with the E6600 Core2Duo and I get a post error naming the X1800 as the culprit... I switch to a handy spare X850 and it boots fine so I check all the normal items like the seating of the card, etc and still the post beep codes prevail.
I started backing off new components, first the ram, which I didnt think would make a shit of a difference, but I did it anyway, and then the processor. I reinstalled my D and it booted? WTF? Install the Core2Duo and schmutz...back on its ass..
Has anyone run into this or know anyone that ran into this somewhere? I have ZERO settings manipulated from default (well, back when I was testing) and have a very good working knowledge of computers, so the easy stuff has been looked at.

Well my E6300 and Radeon X1800XT go fine together, haven't had a chance to test them out on a game yet, as the sounds not up yet, and I'm downloading SP2 at the moment first. I only got the OS installed this afternnon, but I'm on a Gigabyte DS3, so I imagine its your motherboard that might be causing the problems.
