Problems with video card upgrade

I'm having problems with my video card upgrades on two computers:

I replaced two GE2 TI 500 cards with two GE FX5900XTs. They are both Win98SE so I set the drivers to the standard VGA drivers. Then I removed the old nVidia drivers. Powered down and swapped the cards. Then I powered up and installed the newest nVidia drivers.

My issue is with some games, games like Dungeon Siege and Star Wars:Galactic Battlegrounds will crash with a Windows exception error when starting. Other games (the newer ones) work fine. I tried reloading the drivers, updating DirectX, and deleting and reinstalling the games. I'm totally stumped now.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
