XP or Vista?

if your on XP, I can help!

Control Panel -> System -> Hardware Tab -> Device Manager

Find the display adapter (6800gs) and right click and click uninstall

What a big jump heh, games are gonna look great now

I'm in the same boat. I'm looking to replace my 6800GS pretty soon. Great little card but it's show it's age.

Hope the 8800GTS works a lot better for you!
