Graphical glitches with new graphics card only when playing games

Hi everyone. Just yesterday, I purchased an MSi Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti Power Edition with 2GB of VRAM. This was an upgrade from an ATI 5670. Before the upgrade, my games were all running just fine. After upgrading, I immediately updated the drivers from the Nvidia website including their control panel. At first, I was able to start Skyrim fine, but then this started happening:

The first picture is vanilla Skyrim with only texture replacement mods. The second is with an ENB mod that alters coloration and lighting. You can see the outline of the two people in the one with the ENB. Please note that the dimness is not the issue, as this is at the start of the game. The game will start off this way, then switch to regular, then back to looking like this, seemingly at random.

I thought at first that maybe it was an issue with Skyrim, but I tried playing Far Cry 3 and the same thing started to occur.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

    That seems to have done it! Thanks so much. On another forum, they were telling me it was a bad card.
