I have never seen a motherboard with both AGP and PCI-Express. I heard PCI-Express took the place of AGP. Perhaps you mean standard PCI? The card you posted under product is a standard PCI. http://www.google.com/products/cata...

Just because the OP does not come back in 3 or 4 days to reply, does not mean he will not come back and reply.

I vaguely recall there were a few boards with both slots. Not the best setup.

I have a asrock 939dual-sata2 one of the first to come with both slots. I replaced video card about two months ago and it works great never had a problem with this motherboard. Reinstalled windows to get rid of a bunch of my ex wife's stuff. Was gaming last night and decided to do this. When I first installed this board it detected it right off the bat. I just figured it was a setting in the bios I need to switch, it has to be something simple. I have done this many times with old graphic card just first time with the pci express. I hope this helps. Thanks for the respones.

OK I see by googleing your board it does have both. I am sorry I just have never seen a motherboard with both. As OtheHill said there was only a few. Must have been when PCI-Express first came out. It is all cool now hope you get it working.

Do you get video for the POST screens before Windows starts?

No, that is not what I mean. I assume you are connected to the add in card.

I ask again, when you first start the computer do you get any video?

There should be a setting in the BIOS to select what graphics to boot to. That is so the BIOS doesn't waste time looking. If you find such a setting set it to PCIe.
