Yeah, the connector is lined up as the other colors. And Sampson, I tried to use a new motherboard for my 6600 and it didn't work. I didn't have MSI drivers there, but I was 100% sure I removed the MSI drivers on my current computer.

350W is the bare minimum that card will run with, so depending on how weak the PSU may be, or how much you're already drawing off the 12V rail, it could be the PSU. When you unplug everything you don't need, make sure the card is on it's own molex.

Reboot and go into the BIOS, make sure that these settings are disabled:
System BIOS Cachable
Video BIOS Cachable
Video RAM Cachable
Set your AGP Aperature Size to 128mb
Make sure that AGP Fast Writes are enabled.
If the AGP Fast Writes are already enabled, and it won't boot in AGP8X, disable them. Your card should be able to boot up in 8X mode, you have an 8X AGP slot.
Might also be a good idea to update your chipset drivers: http://downloadfinde.....mp;submit=Go!
Also, if you can boot into safe mode, right click the desktop, click Properties/Settings/Advanced/Monitor and then check the box that says Hide modes that this monitor cannot display
