Did you remove your old drivers, and install the latest ones from the nvidia site?

The non working games, when you try and start them, do you get an error message?

What does it say?

Well when I bought my BFG Tech? NVIDIA? GFX Card it came with this inside:

I would call that number if you have a BFG? OVERCLOCKED? GFX Card, but if not, look inside and out of the box for a number; E-Mailing companies may take longer then a phone call.

Edit: Oh, and [H]ARD|FORUMS may help too, but I would try the call to NVIDIA? first.

I would go to the hard forums first, chances are they will be more help then some company that just cares about your money.

Hopefully you bought a bfg or other repitable brand, you might need to ram it, and you will want a company that is not up there ass about it.

Hmm. that's frikin' wierd. I've heard some games had probs with the latest NVidia Drivers. I would suggest, together with the hardforums, to go to sme games' official forums, like the steam forums. If they know of a common problem, they will tell you. If they don't, it's most likely that your GFX card is broken in some way or other. Maybe assembling faults, who knows.

Newest does not mean best though.

You graphic card probably overheated like i said, it crashes in games when your gpu core temperature is too high.

really sounds like there's something wrong with the card itself

go to the store andexchange it for another one, and then if it still persists call nvidia
