Default NVIDIA 8800GTX PCIe incompatibilities arise

If you recall, two years or so ago, ATI could not pass muster, but in the end, it turned out to be delays and a whole lot of behind the scenes arm twisting. This time however, it is worse for the green team, it looks like it won't get compliance without a time machine and a lot of soldering.

This time, the problem is plain and simple incompatibility, we have reports of 8800s not working in several PCIe 8x slots
