Hello everyone i have posted my problem on blizz tech forum but no help at all --> Post DxDiag --> bye bye.

My PC:
Asus M4A88T-V EVO/USB 3
Phenom 1045T @ Stock 2,7Ghz
Gigabyte Radeon 6950 OC 1Gb @ Stock clock
4x4Gb Kingston HyperX @ 1333
Barracuda Green 1Tb 5900Rpm
Fortron Epsilon 600W
LG 2290 via HDMI - 1080p
Got 3x120mm blue leds Cooler Master and Cooler Master 430 Elite case. Cpu cooled by Cooler Master Hyper TX3.

I monitor all my temps and they are perfectly fine this bug/texture problem occurs only while playing WoW.
All drivers, everything is up to date. I have reinstalled Windows/WoW multiple times. No addons, nothing clean game.

So i experience some kind of texture flickering its pretty annoying happens randomly, mostly in orgrimmar/stormwind (the capital cities).

I have a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jD9N_WFKYNw&feature=yout... (watch carefully between 5-8sec) .

There is only 1 solution setting the view distance to Low - guess what it looks terrible. And lets not forget the incredible low fps i get in raid finder in some fights it drops to 9 or something. Same bad performance/texture bug happens in Dx9 mode Dx 11 OpenGL V-sync, no v-sync , swapping old/new drivers,swapping hardware,windowses. My PC can run normally BF3 everything maxed out 40+ fps/ NFS TR constant 30fps / NBA 2k12 constant 60fps oh and well League of Legends 60fps - all games maxed out - no glitches no bugs.
So can anyone help i ran out of ideas i did try everything i can think of and still the game runs bad.

Does this happen when using DVI-D/I cables instead of HDMi?

Also have you tried the latest CCC software, including the beta?

How about with lower ground clutter, obviously you need projected textures on but how does that effect it?

Also, higher/lower resolutions, windowed and windowed full screen modes?

Do you have any gigabyte software running? similar to asus gamer OSD, I know that wow will severly drop in fps with Gamer OSD running but im unsure what its like with other 3rd party softwares.

Your issues is clearly software based, either within settings of the game or 3rd party conflict, could you list all programs you run?

I did try on different settings/resolutions nothing helps except view distance to low.
I dont have any gigabyte or asus software running im getting the new drivers directly from amd/realtek sites (same problems with the bundled drivers btw). My programs are exactly the same as they were back in 4.2 patch (i was able to play wow perfectly without problems).
Avira Premium
Realtek audio manager
Brother status monitor/control center
catalyst control center
usb 3 monitor

And thats pretty much it, some more services connected with the programs above and windows services. Nothing unusual, nothing unknown, i scan my pc almost on daily basis. Everything updated. I tryed WoW on a fresh w7ult sp1 install with drivers only and the bug/glitch/flickering is still there.

Do you have any power saver options enabled, screensaver etc etc?
Do you have any other HW software such as mice/keyboard drivers (mainly mice)
Do you have another monitor to try it on (or trying your monitor on a different pc)

If none of the above help then im close to out of ideas on what to try what is free, I know that often people have the screen going black and that can be the PSU but its not often it will turn white.

Although WoW works very different to other games id find it hard to believe its a HW problem when your able to play other games fine.

Windows plan- no/ Screensaver- no.
AMD C&Q/C1E - Enabled-Disabled - no difference
With/Without razer driver - again no difference

http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine - Recommended PSU Wattage: 437w (Fortron Epsilon 600w is 80+ so there shouldnt be a problem)

Have you tried using a new game client downloaded directly from blizzard?

And are you experiencing Error 132?

If you are using a legacy client that has been updated and patched to death this could be the issue as it is the leading cause of Error 132.

Try downloading a new Client that is already patched to either 4.2 or 4.3 and go from there.

The client is downloaded from blizz, several times. No errors at all, only performance and this flickering.
