The card will just get to the point where the pc will ask to reboot, than it just flips out with white squares all over the screen, upon reboot I get the vista loading bar but then nothing. It will not boot into windows. It will install the drivers that came with the cd, and work ok, but I cant update and have ot work.

I also have significant less frames in Armed Assault as I did with my 8800 gtx 768 mg card. Isnt this 9800 supposed to be better?

The 8800 GTX is better than the 9800 GTX (which is a rebrand of the 8800 GTS).

Anyway, make sure you used the right version of the drivers, and if that fails, try using an earlier version.
