Unhappy Display Problems

I'm having problems running games in 800x600 display mode. Here is an example of what happens:


The problem only appears when I try to use 800x600. Meaning, I can run the same game in 640x480 or 1024x768 without problems. But I really want to run it in 800x600. I just can't figure out why it's doing this. Please help.

My specs are:
AMD 64 3000+
1 gig pc3200 ram
gigabyte k8ns ultra-939 mobo
viewsonic G71f+ CRT monitor

So far I've tried:
Update Vid card drivers
Lowering refresh rates
reinstalling games
changing around the resolution of my desktop

It does this with all my games, which include:
Diablo II:LoD
The Sims 2
Counter-strike 1.6
Half-life 2
