Hi

I have the graphics card below and the description says it is 24x.

Is this compatible with a PCI-E 16x motherboard?

Thanks

Yes.
The 24X refers to special image improvements (custom anti-aliasing), and has nothing to do with the PCI-E slot.

thank you, you are a life saver.

can I just check this card will work with this motherboard?

also what power supply should I get? I spend £500 and got the wrong power supply.

What power connection does the graphics card need?

The card will work perfectly with that motherboard, no problems at all.
For power, look for a good unit of 500W or over. I think all the HD4890s' use 1x6 pin and 1x8 pin PCI-E connectors so look for that as well.
I take it you are in the UK? If so look at: Scan, CCL, Overclockers, Ebuyer, Microdirect and Novatech for the PSU. Look for: Corsair, Antec, OCZ, Silverstone and Pc Power and Cooling, with at least 1x6 and 1x8 pin PCI-E connectors and an output of 500W or a little more.
Stay away for cheap powersupplies, they are tempting I know, but they cause no end of problems, stick with a good maker.

thanks for your help, I will go with that and order one I have been trying to get it going for a while with no luck I think it is the power supply.

thanks again
