Default Help with graphics adapter

I just put together my computer that you guys helped me build (1st build from scratch and went together surprisingly easy) until I try and get my graphics card installed.

OS Windows vista 64bit

here is a link to my components if it helps Build list

I have installed all the software and it still doesn't recognize the adapter in my device manager. I have tried uninstalling the (standard VGA Graphics Adapter) and starting over fresh and keep coming up the same thing. It has a yellow triangle over the icon with an exclamation mark on it since it isn't working.

Any help straightening this out would be appreciated.

Thanks,

John

Any ideas? I'm kinda at a loss. The monitor works when it is plugged into the output, but the actual driver isn't being loaded. There is nothing to pick from like it isn't even there.
