  1. Have you tried foxconn's website? If the board is over 2 years old, then probably not.
  2. Even if it's not, you shouldn't have a problem with PCI-Express 2.0 graphics cards.
  3. Just found out that it isnt pci-express compliant, but my new 9800GT 1GB "green edition" graphics wont work, all I get is blank screen even though it seems to boot up ok
  4. Sorry.
    You have the very typical issue that almost all VIA chipsets have with PCI Express cause they didn't follow the specifications to the letter. That means that they have issues with backwards compatibility when a PCI Express 2.0 card is put on it. The fix is rather easy but you need a friend with a non VIA chipset mainboard to flash your graphics card.
