I did decide to go ahead and install XP so I could move forward with this thing.

Pretty dismayed to find out that no matter what I do the video card drivers won't install. Not the ones on the provided DVD, not the latest ones online.
Install always fails while trying to install the display drivers.

Apparently the system knows what video card it is, the Found New Hardware wizard called it by it's model name/number.

I know I've got it mounted correctly, with the right power, the video card fan is spinning.

Not looking forward to the RMA process.
