Whats happening with the machine? How do you have your memory inserted..

As per the Newegg page of your motherboard:

DDR2 1066*/800/667

* Due to AMD CPU limitation, DDR2 1066 is supported by AM2+/AM3 CPU for one DIMM per channel only.

just went back and tested it with just one stick of RAM, still no picture at all... all fans are running when i hit the power and the fan on the video card jumps from a mid range speed to a pause(less than 1/2 sec) back to the mid range speed

Don't take this wrong, it's a real shot in the dark. What PCIe port is your video card plugged into, the upper or the lower one?

yes to grantofhell and yes to wol-va-rine... they are plugged in correctly and it is firmly in the slot... what i am thinking may be the issue is that the default drivers on the MB wont accept the graphics card yet and since it is a fresh system(no OS, never been to BIOS(or at least seen if ive been to BIOS)) i have not yet been able to go in and configure it to accept the drivers for the video card... sound logical to anyone???

I would try another video card on the motherboard and try that video card on another motherboard just to try to narrow down which one is the issue and RMA it...
