Default possible bad new 6800xt card...

I just bought this new xfx 6800xt agp card from newegg and I installed the latest drivers 93.71 last night and the card and when trying splinter cell double agent theres was like graphical corruption going on in the game like i see greenish lights or tearing or something. Well i fired up might and magic dark of messiah and it was doing the same thing.



So today decided to uninstall the driversand install older 91.47 fresh, well loading up splinter cell again I saw a little of that graphic issue in the main menus and i started playing it every 10-15 seconds I see that really quick but not as severe as last nite.



Wanted to know how do i find out if its still bad drivers or bad hardware video card?

I noticed this post was made AFTER you asked about unlocking the extra vertex and shader pipelines.If you fooled with rivatuner,undo your changes and it'll likely work again.
