I have a rather interesting problem.

It all started about 3 months ago. I started getting weird video on my desktop and during gaming. It would only kick on (the corrupt video) when I started playing a directX or OpenGL game. It would then continue to corrupt the video even after I closed the game. I would have to restart to clear it up.
Here is a image of it.

After swapping out the card with another AGP (Nvidia MX440) I determined it was my ATI9700 so I RMA'd that card. After 5 days (rather quick...kudos to ATI) they sent me a new card. I plugged that in and boom - same problem. But this time I couldnt even POST.

I figured the AGP port went bad on my PC since when I installed a PCI video card I was able to boot and get to desktop. I went out and purchased another MoBo. Installed it, and the AGP cards (ATI9800 & Nvidia MX440) and BOOM - Same farking prob....corrupt video and no POST.

Yet, I am able to POST and load windows with a PCI Video card.

I've narrowed it down to CPU, RAM & PSU. Yet, I can boot without an AGP card on both MoBos with common CPU, RAM, & PSU.

What do you guys think? It loads with PCI card but not an AGP. Perhaps my AGP part of my CPU is fried?

Below are sys specs; I've included all the parts I've been using.

A7N8X DLX / A7n8x-E Dlx
AMD XP 2800
ATI9800 - Nvidia MX440
PC2700 RAM (1024mb)
Win XP SP2

Thanks a bunch
