*Sigh*

ATI and nVidia drivers don't play nice together. Anyway, uninstall your display drivers (all of them). Then use Driver Sweeper. You should read the instructions first though. Get it here

After you do that download the newer ATI catalyst drivers (10.3) and install them.

I'd just like to say that personally I would rather use a clean install. It's often faster and less frustrating to just start off with a fresh install rather than trying to diagnose and correct a driver issue like that.

+1 to Megamanx00 on the clean install. I always do a clean install when I change hardware. However- if you don't want to do that, follow Mega's other post and driversweeper and clean it all out and reinstall. BTW- the newest catalyst is currently 10.2, not 10.3 yet. 10.3 will be out sometime in March.
