Nope, PCIe slot is good, I just tested it with my buddies older PCIe card, an nvidia of some sort.

Just to recap, this si what i have done:

Disabled on board graphics
made sure PCI express is primary display in BIOS
Checked GPU with different computer - pass
Checked MB with known good GPU - pass
Used molex adapters to power GPU
Installed and uninstalled Radeon drivers

The only thing left I can think of is perhaps the PSU isn't supllying the 150W needed to the GPU. It's a Silverstone 500W, perhaps I should try a known good 600W PSU. IF that doesn't work.. then I have no idea what is going on.
