Yay! After totally giving up on getting the damn computer to boot yesterday after we did the upgrades me and my friends went and ate dinner at Sinh Sinh. Yummy. So this morning I took out all the RAM and the Card again and gave it another try and it worked! I think the RAM wasn't seated properly yesterday. I had my friend Alma do it and while she is a network admin and has little hands I don't think she was willing to put the hard shove on the RAM that I was willing to do.
All is right with the world. Now I might try that Ghost Recon game that came with my card just to put it through its paces.
