So i picked up a XFX Geforce 9800 GX2 from a working computer due to the fact they upgraded there video.

So i went to install this in my System and I am not able to get it working properly it shows a lot of lines when you turn it on.

Here are some pics of the problem

I have a 650W PSU Cooler Master Extreme Power

I currently have a Sapphire Radeon 5450 1GB in my computer and it works fine.
There is something i noticed though when i install the geforce card
in Device Manager under display adapters
it shows 2 cards
one for the Geforce 9800GX2 and one for Nvidia Geforce 7025/ Nvidia Nforce 630a.
But when install the Radeon 5450 back it only shows the Radeon and not the 7025/nforce630a

Any help???

Nvidia Nforce 630a is the Mobo chipset. You will need to thoroughly uninstall all traces of the ATI drivers before installing the Nvidia GPU drivers.
The 9800GX2 requires substantially more power than the 5450.
750W good quality would be the absolute bare minimum and 850W would be preferable.

Most likely would problem would be the GPU not receiving sufficient power.
