Alright, so my old video card died on me so I go to newegg and order a refurbished Radeon 9800 pro because it was well priced and I get it in install it and everything seems to be running perfectly until I tried to run World of Warcraft and that’s when things got messy. The images aren’t being rendered correctly everything is very hazy. I then put on unreal tournament to make sure it wasn’t the game and sure enough same thing happens. I then reinstall different versions of the driver and catalyst and finally I take my brothers Radeon 9800 pro and pop it in and sure enough everything works perfect. To me it seems like whoever had the card previously tried to tamper with its bios maybe and messed it up is. I have no idea what to do does anyone know what could be wrong or if this is fixable.

(P.S. both my brother’s card and my new card are made by Sapphire)
