Default sweet, help!

I got my 8800GTS today, its the 320mb version

I don't play that many games, but anyway, when i play Time shift it glitches sometimes.
I have the most updated drivers.

Even my 7900gt didn't glitch at all.

do I have to update something else?

Glitches? as in artifacts? post some screen shots. If your artifacting, you might have a defective card.

uh.. do you understand what I mean by artifacts? Those can be caused by either a defective card or over heating.. not the drivers.

yeah, like lines.. or things on the screen?

EDIT: When i play source, it says that my card is using Direct x 7???! DXDIAG says direct 10.

I think I should use driver cleaner and re do my drivers..
