Snow Leopard thinks my NVIDIA 9800GT is an ATI Radeon HD 4890?

I recently installed Snow Leopard (Retail 10.6.3) on my hackintosh with these specifications, using Chameleon 2.0 (RC4) as my bootloader:

My Specifications:
Asus P5Q (Intel P45 Chipset) motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 Yorkfield 2.5GhZ
EVGA GeForce 9800GT 512MB

But I'm having trouble getting my graphics card to be recognized correctly. Chameleon correctly identifies it as a GeForce 9800GT (as does my Leopard 10.5.8 installation), but after I boot into Snow Leopard, the Apple System Profiler shows this:

ATI Radeon HD 4890:

Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 4890
Type: GPU
Bus: PCIe
Slot: Slot-1
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 512 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)

ROM Revision: 113-B7710C-176

Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this to happen? Thanks in advance!
