Just built me and my wife new rigs last weekend....

AMD 965 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Asus M4A785TD-V EVO http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

4 gigs ram http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

HD5870 http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX25835(ME).aspx

Win7 x64

Seems to run Dirt 2 no problems but for some reason with everything cranked up in Aion get a pretty bad jitter pretty much everywhere especially in Pandamonium. Updated all my drivers and even flashed bios ( bios flash was more because at start-up every once in awhile the vid card wouldnt post and found it was a fix for my MB) . Havent changed any settings in bios other that disabling onboard graphics. My wifes PC has everything the same except havent updated her drivers other than vid card and havent flashed bios, yet she has the same issue, granted doesnt seem quite as bad.

Any help would be greatly appriciated!!

A couple of questions so bear with me :D 

Are u using the updated *64 bit* catylist drivers from ATI's site?

Also, Aion may have some issues with the card.

You may(doubtedly) be getting internet lag. That COULD be producing a jittery effect.

What kind of power supply do you have?

thanks

turn down your graphic settings? Not sure how demanding that game is, but maybe run FRAPS or another FPS OSD to monitor your frames. If they are dropping below 60 lower your settings.

1. running 10.2 of catylist and is the win7 64
2. psu antec earthwatts 750

Aion isnt too demanding or atleast been told with the system I built that it would chew up aion, we get 35-65 fps in game average.

That psu is ok, and actually more than necessary. I think you should RMA the 5870

That would be a driver issue. I had the same problem with the 197 drivers for my 260GTX.

It says Video Device stopped responding. Windows has corrected this error.

I used my rollback driver as well and it works fine now.

Sorta late for this but...Have u used an nVidia card on ur current PC?

If so you may need to use driver cleaner.
