    Not sure what your problem is.
    Computer freezes 2-3 minutes after startup?
    Why did you swap out the vid card?
    How is it "hanging up" during the OS install?

    Edit:
    Have you done a visual check...all fans are spinning and the interior isn't layered in dust?

    Er, "optimum performance" is the least of your worries if you are hearing sounds from your AGP slot.
    You could substitute a PCI vid card and see if that solves the issue.

    The slot is making the noise?
    Or the card in the slot?

    And what kind of noise?

    if it's a buzzing - could it be the power supply being underpowered?

    The noise could be a fan that needs replacement.

    here is a excerpt from the intel web site on your board

    * What add-in AGP cards can be used?

    The Intel® Desktop Board D845WN AGP socket can be used with AGP cards that comply with the AGP 2.0 specification. The Intel® Desktop Board D845WN can only accept 4X card(s) operating at 1.5V.

    * Note: Legacy 3.3V AGP cards are not supported.

    * Can I use the AGP card retention mechanism with any AGP card?
    The AGP retention mechanism is made for use with AGP cards that meet the AGP 2.0 specification. These cards have a special slot at the back of the card that interlocks with a small plastic stud on the retention mechanism. Cards that do not meet the AGP 2.0 specification should not be used with the retention mechanism, because the small plastic stud may interfere with correct installation and retention of the card.
