Problem solved by a bios update. 8800gs runs great, havent gotten to test it on any games yet, but I will after a doctors appointment.

My only options for onboard video is enabled and auto. The i can have enabled and auto for onboard frame buffer which sets that ram it uses. Once in that i can set that to disabled.

Reseat the card. Try a different pci-e connector.

Ive tried reseating, its a single slot pci-e board, and the only pci-e computer in my house. If everything i try fails, ill head over to a friends and try it out.

*edit*
I just got done with another round of trying a bunch of different things, and still nothing. Should I try flashing my bios?

*double edit*
It recomends a 26 amp 12 volt rail, I have dual 18as, so it should still work correct?
