I recently upgraded to a Radeon HD 2600 XT - AGP(visiontek). I used Driver Cleaner to remove all previous drivers, then acquired the latest Catalyst drivers from visiontek (they appear to be identical to what ATI offered). I also installed the latest SIS AGP drivers for my board.
Perviously I attempted to use both the ATI site's drivers and then "Omega" drivers with the same results - bad.

During 'Oblivion' things are most notable. The graphics are sporadically chunky, discolored, etc. The temps 'seem' ok (it happens right at start up anyway, so prob. not the issue?). In fact, even the Windows Welcome screen sort of 'scrolls down' it's blue screen so slowly that it's visible.

Any ideas? This is lousy. :( If I did this right, here are a few examples of how it looks.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!
