End of PCIe x8 port was closed, so modded it to be open to accept x16 graphics card.

Will be getting USB sound card later, but none right now.
Able to load Setup Wizard, but video which would have the girl is just a black box.
This is a new video card installation. Onboard video card is ATI, and only barely made it through installation.
If it matters, not sure whether had Internet connection during installation, but probably not.
Wondering whether video card is good enough. If not, not too late to return it and get another with better specs. Any other card I would get would be dropped in the x8 slot, or possibly a x16 slot I have coming, but my understanding is the x16 slot will only utilize x8 also.
Wondering whether it might just be that I don't have sound (says something about alsa not working, but... yeah, no sound card), or that there is some kind of sound support on the video card, but it's only for sound over video output.
