Exclamation Darnit! help plz

Since ive installed my new video card, when i goto open and play a game, when it shows the game, previews before play or even the game play, i get the flickers... like you can see the frames loading or something like that. its REALLY annoying... could this be because lack of power?? or just the card???!!?

Did you download the drivers? Happened to be once. I swapped out my old geforce 2 MX for a radeon 9200. images were crap. I DLed the drivers and it was fine.

I'd say it's because of the loading speed (from hard drive)
see what other programs are running that might be trying to access the hard drive all the time (like antivirus)
and try defragging
