    You got the extra power connected to it? If so your card is toast, send it back.

    As far as I know an 8800 has at least 1 power connector on it, If you didn't plug it in and it has one then you don't have a chance of it working.

    well i got some extra wires in the box but i thought it was for something else.. like setting up for tv but can you explain me how the connector looks like and where i should plug it to?

    You may only have 1 of those, or you may have 2. Plug in the wire from your power supply that looks like that.

    You plug it (the plug) into one of the boxes labeled in SNGX's picture:

    Just make sure your power supply is powerful enough. To see, check out my guide in my signature.
