The motherboard type is actually Asus P4S8X-X

It does NOT support PCI Express; your new video card will not work.

nope, if it doesn't have an PCI Express slots, which it doesn't, than you can't plug it into the motherboard. It's liek trying to plug in an ac adapter into a phone line, two different socket's.
New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD
-Antec Minuet Case w/ 350w psu
-Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
