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:

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