Hello and welcome to the forums
You have to completely remove the drivers of your old card(using driver sweeper in safe mode) before installing your new card's drivers.
Here's how to do a clean install of your driver
1_Install driver sweeper from
2_Go to control panel and uninstall your current driver.
3_Reboot and go to safemode and open driver sweeper and click on "Nvidia" and "ATI" then click on clean
4_Boot normally and Install the new driver

Have you OC'd anything ? Also what are your CPU/VGA temps while gaming ?
