I had a similar problem with my radeon 9800. The problem with mine was the power connector. The cable running from my PSU to my VPU was shotty. I tried using a different power cable and nothing.
Also you bought a new AGP card, and basic logic tells me that you bought a more powerful one then your last one. More powerful video cards tend to consume more power, (power being Watts/Second). And if the total amount of Watts/Second consumed by all your components is greater then the power output of your Power Supply Unit, then your going to get exactly the problem you have described.
Read the box of your new video card to see what it says the minimum wattage you need for your power supply. Often you need up to 50 watts more then recommended if you have other power hungry components.
