    Possibly you are using value ram... which may not have enough soup for that card. Use 1 GB memory modules that are designed for gaming... also double check your video graphics card drivers online. There may be an update available.
    BSOD is usually hard drive, memory, cpu fan, video card or video graphics drivers. Since it apparently did not happen until you put in this new video card, something there is likely the problem.
