Unhappy New Gigabyte mobo won't post

Hi, I have a Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 (rev 1) motherboard, and I have a PCI Club 3D Radeon 9250(passively cooled) 128mb graphics card.

The problem I'm having is it won't post, I have tried a similar but different 9250 (made by sapphire) again PCI and still no post screen.

I have also tried pci express cards, and older (but different chipset) pci graphics cards and they work fine.

I get no beeps or screen activation.

I've updated to the latest BIOS release from Gigabyte and no change, and the main reason for wanting this card to work is that I use Debian Linux and have found this card(on other machines) to be the best for 3d acceleration on this platform.

I have tried all different configurations (that I can think of) in the BIOS to get this to work and still nothing

I know the card itself works as it's fine in another machine.

Please help!!!!
