Default New Video card problems

So I get this new 9800 XT today right? I put it in and I get yellow grid lines in games and on the desktop (more severe in 32 bit than in 16 bit) and games that have lines all over them and connecting points if it's a 3D game like ut2004.
My guess is a defective card because I tried drivers and EVERYTHING else sometimes it gets really bad in the middle of a game or something and the immages on the screen will look like you have it in 340x260 or some weird rez (very low rez). But if you guys could reccommend anything that would be cool.

make sure 100% of the previous drivers are uninstalled, out of registry, and deleted.

then make sure you have the latest drivers installed.

make sure the game doesn't have a patch or anything like that out.

if it still doesn't work I guess RMA it.
