Default Video Color Problems

I just got a eVGA 6800 and now when I play video the colors are weird. I lowered hardware excelleration to half and that fixed it but then some games don't play. I set forced RGB on my video player and that works fine but some FMV type scenes in games still have weird discoloration, like pinks and faded colors is all I see. What's a fix for this? I read lots of others have this problem but never found a solution.

I haven't overclocked it, but I did reinstall the drivers and no luck still. It only happens in older games and any video(mpeg,avi, etc)

Any suggestions for this? Anything that defaults to windows media on the net looks funky still too so there isn't much I can do :-/
