Hey All

I have a EVGA GTX 260 video card and I'm pretty sure I know what is going on but I dont know how to fix it.

If I have to do a fresh install of OSX or a restore from time machine- When I reformat my hard drive and I have the GTX 260 in the slot -once the install screen starts to come up- the screen goes black.

Now I have a ATI 4890 card that I have to put in there so I can install see the screen and install OSX - I would leave the ATI card in but I have a ASUS Rampage Gene II board and they dont like each other. The GTX card plays better with Adobe products and FCP.

Once I get OSX restored -I can put the GTX 260 back in and everything is fine.

I was thinking of changing to a 9800 GT card because I need to free up some space in my case and want to go to a single slot card.

If I change to a 9800 GT card -will it make the screen go black if I have to reinstall again? Is it just the 260 or all NVidia cards do this.

Any fixes

Matt
