Random picture display when loading windows 7.. URGENT HELP!

I recently purchased an ASUS 8800 Ultra to upgrade my 8600GT. However, around 1 out of every 5 times i try to boot into windows 7, i get a weird picture on my screen and the computer does not boot. I have attatched a link to a camera image of the picture i get on my monitor. After I get the pitcure, the computer just freezes and stays at that image until I manually have to shut down the computer which is harmful. Please help me guys!!!! I am not sure whether my motherboard can not handle the graphics card, but I am also realising that when I play games, my new graphics card seems to be slower than my 8600GT (old graphics card). I have an 800W PSU. It could be the graphics card power connector because I had to buy a 4 pin molex to 6 pin gpu adaptor which seems to be missing one pin although the graphics card does operate. NOTHING HAS BEEN OVERCLOCKED AND ALL TEMPERATURES ARE NORMAL!

Specs:

E7300 Core 2 Duo 2.66GHz
Gigabyte GAP31S3G motherboard
4GB 1066MHz RAM
320GB HDD
800W PSU
ASUS 8800 Ultra

  1. 8800s are known for their issues. Try the card in another PC, see if it does the same thing.
