Sounds like it is more than likely a driver issue, did you install different drivers for your card when you installed the fresh copy of windows on your hard drive?

EDIT: You should try updating your drivers. Did your O/S change? (Ex: XP to Vista, etc)

Also, was your hard drive the only thing that changed? Are the games that you're playing still the same? At the same settings? These may seem like silly questions but they are important.

That's pretty weird...

Do you have more than one PCI-E slot? Could try putting it in another slot. It could be getting under powered (assuming a strange coincidental PSU failure) but I doubt it. Have you checked the temps on your GPU? Maybe the cooling stopped working properly.

That's all I can think of at the moment.
