Default Problem with new gfx card (in brand new comp)

Hi I have just got my new comp, and whenever I try playing a game the whole thing freezes and I have to restart the computer. As it's a new comp (arrived today) I have not overclocked it or anything, but it may have teething troubles! Oh and I didn't build it.

What could be the problem?

Full Specs

AMD 3700+
AN8E Motherboard

X1800XL 256Mb

2 Gig RAM

As I bought this machine

600w but what manufacturer? my guess is probably driver issues (which is usually the case) rather than a hardware problem given its brand new. download the latest drivers for the motherboard and graphics card
