I recently build my own gaming PC, and all the games i play run smoothly without any problems (cod black ops, team fortress 2, Counterstrike go,...)
But for some reason battlefield 3 causes problems, it does not always happen but when it does the game is unplayable. I get purple textures and long black bars fill up my screen to the point i can't see anything anymore.
All the settings are on ultra, i have "Nvidia Geforce Experience" installed and it recommended to set everything on ultra.
My gpu card gets about 70-76 c° while playing BF 3 sometimes lower, depends on my room temperature.
My pc specs:
GPU : Nvidia GTX 660 msi
CPU: i5 3570K
memory: 8 gb ram corsair
Motherboard: p8z77-v pro s1155 asus
I overclocked the i5 3570k to 4.40 Ghz thinking that it will solve the problem but it did not.
I've read somewhere that i need to underclock my gpu, but i have no idea how to do that, i actually don't know how to overclock but thanks to AI suite, it did it for me. Everything runs stable after i overclocked it so i don't think its cpu but i can't be sure so i'm asking you guys
I have added a picture of how my game of how it looks when all the textures get all weird and purple BF3 PURPLE//
