The solution is to give us more information.

Hardware specs, Temperatures (CPU, GPU), error messages (if any), GPU driver version.... etc etc.

I had a similar problem a couple of times with NFS shift. You need to select a different resolution (lower), maybe with AA AF off, accept and exit the game. Then try again, start game, go to play. I saved a copy of a working graphicsconfig.xml file located in :
my documents
NFS SHIFT folder

because, it seemed like I could get in a funky loop and the game would just keep crashing.

So if you like, open your graphics.xml file in notepad, copy everything in here , from mine. The game should then start at "1680" height="1050"

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

Something out of whack indeed, patodoom. Both of those titles work flawlessly on my system, which is a few steps below yours in overall BangPowWhoosh. I like the card though, heh, had a chance to pick one up for 175 last fall, but decided to wait to see if fermi drops the price of the 58xx instead.
