Which versions of PCI Express does your MoBo support. It may not support x16.

Thanks for the response. All indications were that the Mo Bo supported the full PCIeX16 board. I have since learned that the Diablotek VX5450 Video card works fine in another machine running XP, and an ASUS GeForce GT220 worked just fine in my ThinkCenter. So my conclusion is that the Diablotek VX5450 has a compatibility problem with my ThinkCenter.
