In specs, graphics cards, more info, 6800:
AGP Support: NO, PCI Express Support: YES
So, I'd *assume* it does have PCI express, best way to find out is to pop the top, though.

PCI express would look something like the blue and orange slots

Like 754 socket AMD motherboards and socket 939 AMD motherboards.

and, the reason why your RAM wont work with an AMD mobo is because Intel uses DDR2(Which is 240 pin), while AMD uses DDR1(Which is 184 pin)
thats not true...not all intel boards support DDR2...only current ones. most support DDR1..

the more recent Intel's use DDR2. AMD will also be going to DDR2 in the beginning of next year, and will have DDR3 support by 2007 as far as I know
