New Video Card, lagging window movement

Last response: in Windows 7

I just purchased a new Radeon 7970 video card and installed it. Downloaded the Catalyst Software and drivers for the 7900 series. Also redownloaded DirectX just incase. However when I move a window (i.e. browser window) around the screen there is a white lag trail left behind that I've never had before. I have a custom system and switched from a GTX 560Ti card (I deleted all Nvidia related items too). Never had an issue with the previous card. Please help :( 

Here are some system specs if it helps
G skill DDR3 1600 RAM - 8GB
180GB intel 520 SSD
1TB WD Caviar Black HDD
Sapphire Radeon 7970
ASUS P8Z68-VPro mobo

Have you tried unistalling & re-installing the drivers that came with the CD?

For me, it's only the browser window that has the problem! (Google Chrome). Games/everything else runs fine :\

If it is one program maybe it need re-installing. Also chrome uses alot of RAM when viewing multiple tabs so maybe you need more. Do you have 32 bit or 64 bit windows?

64 Bit Windows 8
i5 3750K@3.4Ghz
HD 7870 2GB Ghz OC

Resolved it - (Kinda) - It only actually happens when Facebook is open, I guess as the website is so intensive. When it's not open it's fine!

Thanks for your help fantomdark
