Ok...this is where the trouble starts...I have boughten a visiontek geforce 2 gts....when i post....nothing...screen is blank....i have installed, reinstalled, and still nothing....went to visionteks website and it seems that it could be a voltage problem or god forbid a faulty card...I purchased it through ebay and doubt that I can return it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone used this card on the same mobo I have.

Thanks placid will do.....on a side note....I have tried taping the pin in the last row of pins on an AGP slot with no luck....Seems to me I am sh*t out of luck.
Thanks for the response

I have been able to find on other message boards people using geforce 2 cards in the bx2 without problems but was unable to find any reports of geforce cards having problems in this motherboard.
Have you made sure the bios is set to use agp?
Have you tried resetting the bios with the jumper?
Do you have any cards installed in the pci slot next to the agp?
