comment System will not boot/bios freezes with PCI-E graphics card installed
Thanks for the help. I've actually gotten it to work since I posted this question. Unfortunately, I have no memory of how I fixed it (this question was posted three years ago ;-) )

No luck with resetting the BIOS. I've also tried using the card in the PCI-E 8x slot, but the system doesn't even detect it there, even if I tell the bios to initialize it first.

I've tried resetting the bios with no luck. I don't know if I'm running the latest bios, but the changes in the updated versions they have on their website don't say anything about graphics cards.

Okay, just swapped out the power supply for a 750W one. No luck.

Are you sure about that? Max power consumption under full load for this graphics card is 259W, my processor is 65W... The hard drive/DVD drive and fans can't be drawing that much, can they?

Definitely not the GPU - this is the second card I've tried. I returned the first one to the store where I got it - They tested it and it worked fine. Resetting the BIOS is going to be my next step though.
