Hey guys, Haven't really posted in a long long time.. but something's up with my GFX card as of late. I recently RMA'd my eVGA GTX280 FTW edition because of heavy artifacting, screen tearing and general distortion when playing games. My card will be at 65C before it would mess up 10 minutes into CoD4 on a 1680x1050 display. My cooling in my Antec 900 case is quite good and my processor (E8400 OC'd) runs at 32/40C. When I got my new GTX280 in the mail today, I plugged it in and fired up CoD4. The card immediately started to artifact 10 minutes into the game. Now I'm a pretty computer savvy kinda guy, but I burned in this system pretty good and didnt run into any problems with any other hardware. For full system specs, I'm currently running: E8400 @ 3.2 ghz, 800 mhz 4-4-4-8-1T G.skill RAM @ 1:1 FSB, 1600. PSU is a PC P+C 750W Silencer @ 60 amps. Voltages on RAM is 2.0v CPU @ 1.32v +5V rail @ 4.92V +12V rail @ 12.04V I'm out of ideas guys.. any feedback would be nice. Since you can't host a dxdiag here I have one up in this thread on another forum: http://www.gamereplays.org/community/index.php?s=&showtopic=516380&view=findpost&p=6224083 Here are my video settings: 2 things to note here: I have no idea why threaded optimization was set to On and not on Auto, why Triple buffering is On but Vsync is forced off. Otherwise, every else looks like my normal settings. Could these settings cause artifacting? or the card to go stupid 10 minutes into a game? edit: These are the newest NV drivers. Any feedback would be great!!!!
