bought a new ati radeon HD 3870 Over-Clocked edition 512mb graphics card the other day as well as a new 24" monitor. I watched movies on it, flash movies divx... but when i play World of Warcraft I get weird images i dont even really know how to explain it but heres a screen shot

asus motherboard
pci-e x16

its fully capable of running the card just cant figure out why its making those weird shapes and colors in game.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The card is probably bad.
Tell us about your power supply.

It's also possible that it could be overheating. I had a factory overclocked 3850 once upon a time, and the fan on the card was stuck around 20% and would overheat easily.
