Graphics card error check

Hello, i have a new build on my hands.
it is :
Z77X-D3H S1155 Intel Z77 DDR3 ATX - MOTHERBOARD
Core i7-3770 S1155 3.4GHz 8MB - PROCESSOR
8GB (2 x 4GB) HyperX DDR3 1600MHz DIMM 240-pin CL9 XMP - RAM
win7 64bit - OS

this build is perfectly stable using all the above and internal GPU but the moment i attach a PCI graphics card (ive tried two- RADEON HD 5770 and RADEON X1550) the system boots but shortly after gives me BSOD. error code is: 0x00000124 0x0000000000000000, 0xffffa800b4a9028, 0x00000000b2000000, 0x0000000081000402

Ive looked at different drivers(catalyst control etc) with no effect. both of these graphics cards were working in an old build very recently.
any ideas on how to get these working?
any help would be appreciated greatly! been tearing my hair out having to buy extra bits and pieces to get to this point. this is my final crease to iron out :D

have you tried another PCIE slot?

yup. i can only use RADEON X1550 for that though cos it doesnt need any power like the 5770. same problems :(

just tried it in the 3rd slot(x1550) just incase it was slot 1 and 2 that were duff and this time there was no blue screen- the windows 7 loading screen just doesn't fully load: it comes up but doesn't get the windows flag colours loading onto it. it just hangs. then when i take it out, perfect boot.

Theres a good chance its the motherboard then.

okay, i appreciate your diagnosis, despite it being hard to read! this is a brand new motherboard so that would suck majorly! is there any software you know of and could recommend that will test my hardware's PCI's ?
(cheers for your time so far btw)

i have just tried something new which might be a breakthrough(not seen bsod yet and running for a good 20 mins).
i have inserted the 5770 into one of the lower positioned pci's and in order to get power to it i have pulled up another psu and used the 6 pin output from that(as the current one wouldnt reach beyond the top slot). but in order to move on to a usable setup i need to work out if its unstable power from my main psu or unusable/broken/incompatable slots in my mobo. im scared to try my gfx card in a different slot and risk losing this potentially stable set up.
from the initial error code(up top), which is it most likely to have been? psu or pci? speedy replies appreciated cos running these two 300+watt psu's side-by-side aint gonna be cheep!

If you're using cheap 300 watt psu's theres a good chance that they arent able to run the cards and they are crashing.

Also, try deleting th old drives and re-installing new ones.

It was a faulty mobo in the end.
Unfortunately this was not the end of my constant stream of computer troubles.
