Computer troubles .. again.

Okay my legion of nerds! I need your help once more.

Went out Saturday and bought an EVGA 8800GTX, 768Mb. Installed it in the new comp. Runs like TOTAL SHIT!

Vanguard hangs. SecondLife locks it up so bad that hitting the power button (iow, shutting it off) is the only way to get it to do anything.

Assumed card was defective. Sunday we took it back and exchanged it for another one.

Installed it. Same issues.

We have uninstalled all the drivers, downloaded new drivers. We have flashed the bios. We have updated the bios.

We even took out Bow's XFX 8800GTS and put it in my comp. Updated all the drivers etcetc. It does the exact same thing.

I'm running Windows XP 64 Pro with 4 gigs of ram, Asus Crosshair Mobo, AMD windsor 6400+. I can give specific stats on the comp if needed.

Any advice?
