    Just so you know....
    My DFI LanParty board refused to POST or in any way recognize my 9600XT vid card.
    Worked fine with my backup nVidia card, but not the Radeon.
    The ATI card is fine on my Chaintech board though.

    Don't know if this is an isolated glitch or a general problem with the DFI.

    There's a compatibility issue with Radeon cards and some mobo's, not just Radeon 9600's and not just DFI mobo's.

    I've had similar problems in the past, at least your's wouldn't post, I spent the best part of a week trying to get this problem fixed. Haven't touched a Radeon card since.
