Hello all!

So i am going to be redoing my server and I figured I could go ahead and take the ATX board and convert it into a decent desktop, since i currently do not have one.

The board: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0019MGLQA/?tag=tonymacx86com-20

I plan to upgrade the XEON chips to something a little better, but the main concern is the video.

I require a compatible video card, that can fit into an 8x slot. Performance isnt a TOP issue, as I am not much of a gamer. I do play a few games (civ, simcity, etc), so something mid level would be ideal.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Obviously i could put a midlevel 16x card and open up the end of one of the slots... but.. i rather not.

Awesome thanks guys. It looks like i can shave the backend of one of the slots and achieve this.
