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.
