Everest and AIDA32  both can falsely report this.

If you haven't already, ensure the latest drivers are installed for the card, also make sure your bios settings are optimized for best video performance.

I had the same problem with this on an ASUS P4C800 and a 6800GT. I think you need to go to into the Nvidia option on Display->Settings - i'll look it up when I get the chance (sorry no access to machine) and set it to AGP. It thinks it is a PCI card. Maybe have a play in device manager? Remove the PCI device and autodetect?

Sorry I cant be more help, but I bet you anything it's running on the PCI bus.
