Default help plz....

Hi
I just bought the xfx gforce 6600 gt but having a problem setting it up... >_<
I have ASUS A7V8X-X WITH AMD ATHLON XP2700
2 KINGSTON 512 MB DDR RAM
and currently using GFORCE MX-440

my problem is that when i put the video card in and turn on my computer... the screen gets really choppy and in the bios... it look like those matrix numbers in black and white... then it goes into safe mode to windows... so anyhow i thought maybe the driver wasn't incorrect(although i removed the old graphics driver from device manager) so i double checked and just tried to install the driver provided by the cd... and while on the process of installing... the computer just restarts and restarts... and never finishes the process....
help plz... i was so looking forward to use this new video card and finally had enough money to buy it... and now.... i can't even use it... T_T
I also tried the video card on my brother's comp. and same thing happens...
could it be that the card is defective?
if it is how would i make sure that it is?
plz help

It does indeed sound like the card is defective. I've heard of numerous posts (not just in this forum, across others too) That a lot of the XFX brand 6600GT's have been coming out with issues unfortunately and it sounds like yours is a prime candidate of this.

Best thing you can do is just RMA it, reason DOA, and get it replaced.
