i just purchased a px6600GT card, and everything is fine until i enter any 3d game, then the screen just had red lines all over the place.

could this be a defective card? i have all of the latest nvidia drivers and dx9.0c so i really dont know what could be the problem..

If you changed to a new video card and did not clean up the previous video drivers (remove them COMPLETELY) this could be causing the problem. Go to http://www.drivercleaner.net/ and get Driver Cleaner (it is free). Then make sure that you have the most current driver for your new video card available for install. Then, go to add/remove programs and delete the current video driver. Then boot into safe mode and run Driver Cleaner TWICE, each time deleting all that it finds. Then reboot and install the current video driver.
