  1. Have you tried messing with settings in BIOS?
  2. Yeah it said i need to put some type of card that was suppose to be in the retail box it looks like just a false plug in card in the other slot to achieve x16..I went to the asus store and found the I/O backplate but nothing else that would have come bundled with the retail version

    The card you are talking about is listed in the Package contents on page 1.1 in your motherboard manual. Should have come with the motherboard. http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=eCWbkolMf0DOW0IV&templete=2
  4. yeah I got open box and it wasn't included with it...Where do I find this item
  5. Your best bet is talking to ASUS!

    I have this mobo. I am building the system as we speak. I also have an OCZ PSU. I have some questions for you if you don't mind.

    On a different note - the "other card" you're talking about is the VGA Switch Card. My mobo actually had it in the box.

  7. Ask away Daniel ....I am more than willing to offer any advice that I can help with. BTW I have an extra 890 GX Board now B/C I went ahead and bought another M4A89GTD PRO....This one has the card since it is new. My new machine is gaming better than ever now ...
