Default Computer problems

hi..
When i play NFS Undercover i can only play for 15 min, after that there comes some graphics errors.. just suddenly im 300 feet ahead of where i was driving. it dosent crash or anything. In Frontlines Fuel of War there are some of the same errors, sometimes there is a tank driving and it turns yellow after some time. But when i play WOW i can play as long as i like to, there are no problems with that. so what could be the problem

i have
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS
AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+
4 GB DDR2 ram
ASUStek M2N-SLI deluxe mainboard

NFS is very dependent on your processor if i am right. It might not be strong enough to handle it.

did you delete the old drivers when you did this. This happens to many people when you need to delete old drivers and then install the newer ones
