One long and two short is a video card error. Are you sure the 8800GT works?

 

 

EDIT: Some boards have issues with PCIE 2.0 devices when they are only PCIE 1.1 compatible. I had to flash my roommate's 8800GT to a PCIE 1.1 BIOS for it to boot in his machine. I'd test it in another machine before doing anything else though.
