    Post your system specs. Your motherboard may not be compatable with the video card.

    Depends. Older boards dont work well with newer cards mainly because of voltage issues. Some video card series dont work well with certain motherboard chipsets like Radeon 9600s and nForce 2 or 6800GTs and Ultras having issues with nForce 3 boards.
