Default Video Card Issues

I have recently finished my computer and have tried no overclockingo on it. My computer will start up and everything is normal and fine until I try to run a game. During which the screen will mess up and basically go crazy. The video card I am using is an ATI Radeon 9600xt 256mb card. The driver is CATALYST ver. 4.8 (which I believe is up to date. The links below are exact pictures of what I see when I attempt to boot any gameusing 3D acceleration (havent tried games without but Im assuming it wouldnt have that affect).

If anyone can help me out and tell me if this is an issue I can resolve, and if so how, or if this requires repair or return to ATI I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

When you have a defective card, contact ATi. They will send you a new one completely free of charge in 2 weeks.

Well, the gist I got from the webby is I need to find out the manufacturer, since its Powered by ATI and not ATI-made. Can anyone point me in the right direction just by the look of the box?
