That board is PCI-X so make sure your video is also PCI-X.

Sometimes you might be able to boot into safemode and quickly install the new drivers of the mobo cd. Windows would be much slower than if you did a fresh install.

EDIT: gimli of gloin, PCI-X is totally different than PCI Express (for video cards). Don't get them confused. Call PCI Express PCI-e
