I guess I need to read closer...I didn't notice in previous posts that
you had one of these K8V *SE* Deluxe boards...It seems to share specs
with the plain K8V (ie not Deluxe) which are different from the K8V
Deluxe that is working fine here.  Is anyone else on the list other than
Jeff and Rory using either a plain K8V or a K8V SE Deluxe?    

I can only speculate that perhaps the change in specs (which includes at
least a different network controller, a different Promise hardware Raid
controller and no Firewire) might be the cause for the video problems. 
Perhaps Dave Jones or Alan Cox knows if Asus also made changes in the
AGP bus that is causing video problems.

Were you able to see if running lower resolutions or running startx from
runlevel 3 helped?
