    I've been using a Visiontek 9600 XT without any problems -- can you tell us what you mean by "haywire"?

    And is it an identical issue with all games or just a particular one?

    Is this a new card or an old one -- and has it ever worked properly?

    edit -- ok I see your attachment now.

    I suspect the card itself is bad. If it is under warranty -- I would contact the vendor for an RMA.

    Try reducing the screen resolution, color depth and game detail on the ones with the problem and see if it makes a difference.

    Open the case and see if the fan is working on the card as well. It might be overheating.

    3 years is about the limit on current warranties -- I would immediately check the date of purchase and if it is within 3 years -- contact them for an RMA now.
