    I am building a new PC with the above card on a Gigabyte K8NXP-SLI board
    with a Jeantech 500W PSU and a Athlon X2 3800+ chip. On first boot, the
    display was fine, but for some reason, there would be no display on booting
    but the card would be no warning beeps saying graphics card not present.
    Then, after more reboots, red streaks would appear across the screen where
    any text appeared on the boot screens. Windows was barely legible. Now,
    after more reboots, the back ground is green and text is unclear. I am
    currently running F10s bios but this didn't affect the display but did
    recognise my CPU.
    The card is in the nearest PCI-E slot to the CPU and I have not adjusted any
    SLI settings at all. The power cable is attached to the card (but I will
    admit that I thought that this was only for use in SLI and so did not
    connect it initially.)

    Do I need a new card? Or which piece of hadware is faulty?

    Sounds like a faulty card indeed. Get a new one.
