if you dont have the mb speaker plugged in then you wont hear the beep. what i sayd about the pos pci card is only temporary-if it works, then you know that the display goes to the pci instead of pci-e. then you can go into bios and change it to pci-e so your new card will work. this fix worked for a friend i have so it could be a possability. I also dont know much about pci-e an a mb, but it may not be set to graphics by default.
hope this clarifies things

is this what you have? and make sure the accual card itself doesnt need the power. i also found this forum online that pretty much says it all. there is no 6pin on the mb-only on high end cards. hope this works.
:tazz:

yes, duel channel is the way to go, just make sure i you have on in A0 and one in B0, that they are the exact same speed, size, and usually manufacturer. otherwise, put one in A0 and one on A1.
