Default problem

hello, first of all i am not usre if this is the right forum for this because i am not sure if it is a hardware issue or not. but whenever i play doom 3 not even on high res or nothing the game skips like crazy and the sound skips as well. and when i play WoW on 1024 or anything higher the game goes black to adjust the reso, then keeps doing it over and over again. Doom3 the screen only does it once but extreme skippage. i have a ATi Radeon X700 Pro 256mb PCI-E, AMD 3200+, Kingston Technology 512x2, A-Top xblade w/ 450 Watt PSU, Soltek SL-K890Pro-939, and i am using a Dell e771p monitor. those 2 are the only games i have tried so far cuz the computer is a new build. i passed the 3d draw test and the other ones that are in dxdiag. i am still new to the computer building thing and don't know too much. my desktop reso is 1024x720 and i only have issues while playing games. i am getting very mad cuz i used to use a radeon 9250 on a diff computer and it is at this moment kicking my X700 pros ***. please help me out.

For all of the new and current Catalyst Drives and Control Centers you must have .net framework install on your PC before you install the catalyst drivers and control center.

1.) Download .net Framework.
2.) Install .net Framework.
3.) Restart PC
4.) Install Catalyst Drivers & Control Center
5.) Restart PC

If you currently have Catalyst Drivers and Control Center install on your PC and (NOT) .net framework, it will not work. You must uninstall all catalyst drivers and RESTART PC. Then follow instruction above!
