The first thing that always comes to mind is an underpowered power supply. List your system specs, especially the label on the power supply and we can go from there. List the readings or reading for the 12v.

We actually upgraded the power supply just for this. It's a 520-Watt ATX power supply.
Running Windows XP 64. AMD Athlon 64 3200+ / 2.0 GHz, 4g ram, as far as what else to list, let me know.

On closer inspections, its a 520 peak, and 420 normal. The card calls for 450 or higher...

"520-watt atx power"
that helps us with nothing, any power supply: cheap or expensive has ATX label on it, we need the name like cooler master, thermal take, rosewill etc etc,
and the 12V railing how many amps are under it?

This is the power supply xfx recommends. You can see it has a single 12 volt rail with 44 amps on it. Your psu won't cut it. I wouldn't stick that kind of money into that old machine. It's a single core cpu and only supports pci-e 1.0 which defeats the purpose of upgrading it. Modern games won't play on it.
