^ Did you buy 2 new 9800GTX+ ? Not a good idea IMHO...You should have atleast gone with this...
GTS 250 1GB - Better and cheaper...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But as for the cards fitting, it can surely fit on that mobo as the mobo has 2x PCIe x16 slots(the light blue slots) for the graphics card to run then in SLI...You would also need a SLI bridge too...

If you have not opened the cards, then it would be a good idea to send them back...
