try a directX diagnostic and see if that gives any clues

Do you have a Dell and is the card a powercolor?

Could be incompatability issues between the card and your computer.

For a DirectX diagnostic check go to the start menu and select Run.Then type dxdiag into the box and ok that.You will get a big popup box with several tabs.....look through them.You will see what version of DirectX you have and it will tell you if there are any problems in a box at the bottom of each section.It's worth a look.

It might also help pinpoint the problem if you let us know what game(s) cause the problems and what version of drivers you are using.The screen resolution and other settings you are using with the games would help too.
