Thanks for the info guy, very much appreciated.

I was thinking for a while it might have been the PSU. It's a two year old Antec 500W.

I've been building computers for 10 years now, and this problem has totally owned me.

Check the AGP aperture settings in the BIOS, turn it down to 64MB if higher than that
