Default 6800GS Help

Hey i just built my new computer and i turned it on and everything was fine until i started installing the eVGA drivers and then i got a message saying that my video card didn't have enough power so then i realized i didn't plug in the 6 pin pci-e connecter. Once i did and tried reinstalling the drivers the drivers installed but now the screen is a little bit fuzzy and when i uninstall the drivers its fine is this a bad video card or do i need to update the drivers or reformat the hdd or what please i could really use some help with this

Update the drivers. Also, run the video at the monitors native resolution.

Run you desktop settings at 1064/768, 32 bit and run your CRT monitor at it's highest refresh rate! If you are going to reinstall the drives make sure that you unistall the current drivers and then clean the registry.
