Default video card problems

Does anyone know of any reason the x700 pro and geforce 6600 gt agp wont work in my emachines t2085. I got a new power supply, a 400w dynex and a 350w antec and neither helped. the x700 worked for a day or two then wouldnt boot the 6600gt wouldnt boot ever. I have tried numerous cards and tried them on other systems and they work fine. thanks

What do you mean by "not boot"? Will it POST (the stuff you see on screen before the os loads)? If so, then it's a software probelms and I suggest getting some config that works, backing everythign up, and reformatting
If it does not post, then unplug all but the essentials from your computer (keep ram, HD, vid card, ect) and see if it boots them. If it doesn't, Isadly don't know enough to help, other than to say RAM the cards ASAP and try the new ones they send you.

Also, if any of those cards have a seperate power plug on them, it would be a good idea to make that work.

EDIT: was about to say that...
