Try this:

Turn off the built-in graphics in device manager.
Re-start you computer with the new card inside and monitor plugged in.
Download the latest drivers from Nvidia.

Could be a faulty PCI-e sot on your new mobo.

I agree. I would RMA my mobo if I were you.

Is this a PCIe or PCI graphics card? I only ask because in one post you said it just plugs in a PCI slot and has no extra power connector. You probably meant to say PCIe but I just want to make sure. A PCI card won't work in a PCIe slot and vise versa.

In addition to the above this is the stupid question of the day, but is the monitor connected to the card, or one of the outputs for the onboard?

P.S. Thanks for updating your specs, at least now they make sense with the original question.

PCI-E graphics card in a PCI-E slot.

Just to appease my curiosity...

With the graphics card installed, does the on-board video work?

I know you said it works fine however it should not work with the graphics card installed. If it does and you verified the card works in another machine, then you probably have:

1. a setting wrong in the mobo bios
2. a defective motherboard.

The OnBoard is used instead of the PCI-E. It works with it installed.

I have a different motherboard but my onboard graphics don't work when my PCIe card is installed and enabled. Did you try your monitor on both connectors on your 9500. One last thing to try is to reset your bios to defaults and try changing the settings again.
