    Well it may be 100% unrelated to your video card.


    What kind of startup programs do you have loading up on your pc.

    What video card did you have before and what card do you have now.
    (you say it is the the 256 agp 8x video card) that doesn't tell is us anything really. be specific please make model ex Nvidia 7600GT or whatever it is)

    It could also be power related. upgrading the video on a system with an inadequate (Spelling) power supply can cause performance issues.
