Do the simple checks first: make sure the card is seated properly, check temps, uninstall and reinstall drivers. Try older drivers as well.

Also, if you have another computer around, or access to a friend's computer, you can quickly confirm if the problem lies with your own rig or with the card.

Create a new partition, install a dual-boot OS and test the card in a fresh environment. That way you can eliminate the software side of things without having to format your existing OS partition.

If you have an empty hdd laying around, use it to do a fresh windows install (without activating, obviously) and try the games out. That way you'd at least find out if it is something in software throwing things off.

Edit: Yukon beat me to the same suggestion :P
