GA-K8N and 8800GT

  1. After I ordered (and RMA'd) "2" DOA (i think) eVGA 8800GT superclocked graphics cards from newegg, im starting to wonder if maybe my motherboard could be a problem. I have a GA-K8N Pro-SLI. When I look at the specs for the mobo I dont see any conflicts but maybe someone with more knowledge could shed some light on the subject.

    I just ordered a XFX 8800GT Extreme. I'm just hoping it doesnt do the same thing. Basically what would happen when i put either card in the motherboard, it would turn on, fans would spin, it would send a blank signal to the monitor for 5 seconds, but it wouldnt beep. Newegg found the first card i sent back to be faulty so they refunded me, the second card im still waiting on. Did I just have the rare occurrence of getting 2 faulty cards?

    My motherboard runs my 2 6800xt's in SLI fine. Heres the rest of my specs

    CPU: AMD X2 3800+ (socket 939)
    Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-K8N PRO-SLI
    PSU: Antec TruePower Trio 650 Power Supply
    RAM: 2GB Corsair PC3200 (Dual Channel)
    HD: Samsung 250GB
