    Did you uninstall your old Nvidia driver?

    Use driver cleaner pro (free version) to make sure all nvida graphics is gone but do not clean any nvidia chipset drivers the mobo may have (nvida named alone is typically the video only drivers). That said I have to admit I bought two AGP ATI HD cards and took both back cause they would not work. Mine were made by visiontek though and it was when they first came out. I have never had problems with HD PCI-E cards,just ATI's HD AGP, they suck bad.
