i have the video card connected to motherboard,then there is a p4 6 prong cable hooked up to the end of the video card. thats it.like i said i reboot and system comes up clear on tv for about 5 or so mins then freezes up or goes all fuzzy.
 

^I totally agree "if" the BIOS allows it.

If not then open the Device Manager, right-click {on-board GPU} select Disable, and restart.

Q - What ASUS MOBO?

BTW - I assume that your monitor is connected to the "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT" and not the on-board GPU...

i did go into bios and disabled onboard i have pci-express video card working but only for about five minutes then it freezes or gets all fuzzy.
 
The 'reason' I asked which ASUS MOBO is to 'see' if it has another PCIe slot. If not then 'if' you have another PC test the nVidia GPU in it.

I assume that you have connected the 6-pin power connector to the PSU??!!
