For what it is worth, and I posted in here once, I had similar issues with this card - although my system locked up after a few minutes.

If you can, drop the AGP rate in bios to 4X (or even 2X if available) and turn OFF SBA - you will not see/notice any difference in performance.

For me this fixed the problem - the crad ran unstable at the fastest AGP rate.
