Recently purchased an eVga 7600GS as an upgrade to my old 9600 pro. Uninstalled all old drivers and removed old card. Installed new card and made sure to hook up the ps to card. System boots fine, and everything seems normal to the point that I install the drivers for 7600. Initially tried to install drivers that came with card and as soon as they were installed, system began to lag horribly. i.e. Clicking on the Start button took a few seconds for it to open up, and everything else lagged horribly. Also every 15 seconds or so the screen would blink, as it does when changing resolution. This blinking would speed up and slow down at random it seemed. After this I removed the drivers, and got the newest drivers from nvidia site. Had exact same problem after installing them. System worked perfectly fine with old video card, and is currently running fine but without drivers installed for new vid card. Any help here would be appreciated.

You have to remember that most video card manufacturers put a lot of extra startup stuff on their software. Like my Radeon X1950, when the computer starts up, I leave it alone for about 2 minutes to load up all the software for the card, and the screen does flash a few times, but that is just the card initializing itself.
