Abit IP35 says 7F then FF but no video output - any ideas?

Can anyone help - I get no video feed - my Abit IP35 Pro stops on 7F but if hit F1 it runs through to FF - still no video! What now?!

What happened:

This PC (see spec below) has been running fine for months.

This morning I fire up Unreal Tournament 3 and I get Psychedlic green and pink lines instead of a video image. I immediately reboot and even the boot up screen has the same green lines. Damn I think "I know what this is - bust video card." I had the BFG 8800 listed below in. Not wanting to mess around I went straight out and got a new card: The GTX260 listed below. I stick the card back in, connect 2 8-pin PCI-Ex power leads in the top of the card (also having to move the HDs around to fit the card in) and try to boot up.

Now my monitor doesn't even get a signal - just the "check signal cable" thing.

My board said: 7F - which is video problem I think? I hit F1 though - and it ran through to FF - supposedly normal. However I have no video feed at all.

Now if I reboot it seems to stop on 7F briefly but then automatically runs through to FF.

Can anyone help? What do I do now?!

My spec:

Abit ip35 pro
Coolermaster RS-A00-EMBA 1000W
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.7Ghz
