PC does not shut off

Greetings fellow tech junkies, I thought I'd throw a little issue I'm having out there for you all to mull over.

I received a new video card for Christmas this year. It's an ASUS Nvidia GTS450, and I installed it in my PC. For about a week I had no issues and then my PC started to not shut off when I tell it to shut down. Windows shuts down, the display goes blank, but the case fans, and pwr. supply fan remain on and have to be shut off using the power button. I have absolutely zero issues when the machine is on. I did not have this issue with the previous graphics card (a BFG Tech Nvidia 8800GT) So my thoughts are that it is possibly driver related or some hardware incompatibility or something along those lines, but I thought I'd get some other opinions.

OS: Windows 7 x64

Motherboard: MSI P6N Diamond

Graphics card: ASUS Nvidia GTS450


Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo@2.13GHZ

Power Supply: Thermaltake 650W
