When you install a new video card, it's a good idea to remove the old video driver first.  Boot into safe mode with the old card installed, go into device manager and remove the video card drivers, power down and swap video cards, and boot up again.  You should be prompted for your new video card drivers at this point.

Yeah, if you have anything other than windows XP, then you are going to have a problem with new video card drivers. XP Doesn't have the same problems as past versions because XP will shadow any video card drivers not in use. However, if you are running anything other than XP, you have to uninstall the drivers for the previous video card before you can install new ones.

Hit F8 while it's booting, and you should see that option.  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=315222
