    The RAM does not matter. Have you uninstalled the old video card drivers before installing this new card? If the old video was integrated into the motherboard it should be disabled in the BIOS or on the motherboard via jumpers as well.

    I would assume the old video is integrated since you bought a PCI video card. Check your motherboard's FAQ for known issues and how to disable the onboard video - or post the computer info here as it may be relevent.

    Also, do you hear the Windows startup sound after the video goes out?

    You should then go back to the Intel card, uninstall the video drivers and disable the onboard video in the BIOS.

    You may also want to try another PCI slot when installing the PCI card.

    On a side note, the FX 5200 PCI will not give dramatic improvement - the PCI bus just doesn't cut it for modern game demands.

    Use the up/down arrow keys, or the enter key to change things.
