Go in the BIOS and make sure the RAM settings are above 1 gig. MAke sure all of the connectors for the card are connected in the propper place. Is the card getting too hot?

There is 3 possibilities

nope nothing i still get crap frame rates and a lot of jitter. in the bios i noticed that it has a spot to pick PCI or AGP for the primary graphics slot and i have tryed both and it makes no difference... so... i am almost at the 30 day return limit and NEED this fixed or i need to return it in the next few days PLZ
