Default Graphics card help...

I just bought and installed a BFG Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT Overclocked edition.
One problem, my computer locks up when I try to change settings in a game, and freezes when I try to quit a game.(program not responding)
what could the problem be.PLEASE HELP!!!!!

P.S. the only game that works perfectly fine is Far Cry.
Why would one game be perfect and the others crash?

If I try to change the resolution, the graphic detail, any setting that is changed.

One thing that might narrow it down is that Far Cry works extremely well(perfect)no problems.
