    i have a Thunder K8SD Pro (S2882-D) board and im using the legacy pci
    card for something else and i need a video card - what type of video
    card do i need because the slots on the board dont match anything that
    ive seen - can someone please send me a link to a card that will work
    on one of the pci-x slots

  2. This is a server board with onboard video. You don't need a video card.
    In any event, you should have little problem finding a PCI video card that
    works fine in a PCI-X slot.

    One the S2885 there is a jumper J39 that puts the two 66 MHz
    PCI-X slots into "PCI Compatibility Mode" so that ordinary 32
    bit/33 MHz/5 Volt PCI cards can be used. There should be a
    similar jumper on the S2880 and S2882.

    is there any way to get all of them to be regular pci slots?

    i just checked the slots on the pci-x - those and the reg pci are
    different so how can u use a reg pci card in the pci-x?

    It just doesn't use the whole slot. The unused portion is extra
    data lines that are irrelevant when the slot is used in a 32-bit

    If you have a PCI card that doesn't fit, then it is probably a
    3.3 V card instead of a 5 V card.
