have you tried another video card, to see if the 8800gts is defective or not?

There is an extra power plug on the new cards. Some older PSUs don't supply the needed plug

Did you have a chance to set the video rates? Loaded newest drivers? Do you have onboard graphics?

Are their any tests I should do before returning the 8800 card to Newegg

You could try the nVidia forums, maybe something there would catch your eye. Also in all the switching around did you clean off all the drivers? Just throwing out Ideas, I think you are advanced enough to know all the simple things but I never know all the answers either.
