Nvidia Linux Card not working due to LSI 9200/SAS2008 IRQ conflict

At first my BIOS said the card may not work right because there is no more option ROM space.

I disabled the Option ROM for both LSI 1068 and 2008 chipsets, Network Boot ROM and most other PCI slots, Serial Port, etc... and the message went away but the card still does not work properly.

But it still cannot initialize the card properly (does not work):

One thing is that lspci lists the SAS2008 card before the graphics card and I have not tried the other PCI x8 port yet:

The Solution

 

I moved the LSI card to another PCI slot and it fixed it, basically if the SAS2008 is shown before the Nvidia card it is game over.  Notice the order after I switched the physical slot (of course if you have no other slots this is a big problem).  Even disabling the Option ROM on the SAS2008 did not fix it until I switched PCI slots:
