Your card is probably too new to have linux drivers for it yet. X drivers are always a little behind the curve because the people writing the drivers are usually unpaid, and they have to get the specs for the card after it is released. So your options are: wait and hope somebody writes a driver (check at www.xfree86.org to see if somebody is working on it); use the card with the vga16 driver (16 colors only);  get a supported card. You could also check to see if there are commerical X servers that support your card.
