Fine. I guess teach me not to get a micro atx mainboard next time. Not that its an issue here. Fine after all this discussion here's wat i'am gonna do again:
connect an ati-radeon 5770 pci ex 2.1 1gbddr5 to a msi 945gcm5 v2 matx board with a pci x16 1.0 slot (http://bit.ly/94Lamx)
Will post results or failures in a few days then...... whis me luck......
