> Is the X8 slot on the DP55KG reserved for video only?
No, I have 10gbps + 2 3ware RAID cards in my slots, x16, x8, x4.
PCI video card, no problems.
Does your card work with the x16 slot?
The problem I have found is some boards do not have/allow enough initialization for the ROM of the RAID cards.
Also, the DP55KG did have issues with older bios', e.g. the card would not show up or work properly, but that was a long time ago.
What BIOS are you running?

Thanks for the quick reply. The problem was in fact BIOS related. (Though the board was brand new, it was running a quite old Bios.) I have updated the board to the latest bios which enabled more PCIE options in the Bios menu. Updating the Bios also allowed me to use the X8 slot for my raid card. My system now runs fine on a raid 6 setup.
