just bought a new Ati Radeon hd 4800series and a new power supply. the supply is on 550w so should be enough. but after i removed old drivers and installed the new one my cpu usage has popped to a crusing altitude of 30%:S any one have a clue how to get this back down?

have you checked what processes are running? it sounds like a rouge program or maybe a virus?

did you uninstall all the drivers before installing the new card?

the problem sounds more software based than hardware.
what program is using the extra cpu time?
a c 130 U Graphics card

Open task manager by hitting "control + alt + delete", or by hitting the windows key + R and typing "taskmgr". Select the 'processes' tab, and tell us which processor is the biggest.
