Hey guys was wondering if you could point me in the right direction as to what is the cause of this problem:



Its a random occurence that happens maybe at any point while playing a game - doesnt nescessarily have to be a demanding game, and it is not a problem with over heating (i monitered temperature with riva tuner, idle core temp is 39C, with stressed conditions 59C?). Anyways im thinking it might be a problem with the driver/software BUT it might be a default in the actual hardware itself. I just want your guy's opinion on this and any possible solutions or any other way to find out what is exactly is the problem. (Sidenote - this distortion is solved by alt-tabbing back to the desktop and getting back into the game, however this leaves my computer extremely laggy and sometimes freezes when i exit the game afterwards)

My Computer Specs are:
CPU- Intel Quad Core Q9450 2.66ghz x 4
MoBo- Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6
Memory- Corsair 2gb DDR3 RAM
PSU- Antec Neopower 480W

Problem is too much ram

If you get a knife you can probably pry off half the ram chips and that should solve it.

Yeah, HE'S NOT SERIOUS, PUT AWAY THE KNIFE! lol

Looks like a dead card, yeah. Talk to your manufacturer and RMA that sucker! (I was having similar problems with my old 7900GS... sent it in)
