My new Graphics card: Galaxy 250 GTS 512MB
Overclocking? No, not atm. Tested and happens under-clocked and super-clocked
MY MONITOR: HP 2009m
Latest drivers: Yes! For both graphics card and Motherboard!
1. When I play games, the screen sorta has flickering, dull lines on it. SUPER annoying!
2. On-screen text is sorta "dull". It looks like your one level below the highest resolution or you just installed windows 7 and your graphic card has no drivers. Its not at 800x600, but its at something around 1070x726 or something like that. But I'm running at a native resolution.
I still get extremely good FPS. Left 4 Dead 2: Highest resolution, extremely high quality, 16xAA, 16xAF, 60 FPS average.
My PSU is 700W
Temperatures are great! It has NOTHING to do with heating issues. Ive never gone over 65C, even when Im super-clocked playing Crysis in the highest resolution and very high everything!
I would take the card back, or RMA it. Something must be wrong with it.
It is essentially a rebranded and overclocked 9800GTX, which has been around for some time now, so there should be no bugs or issues with drivers.
Re-installed on another partition.
The text problem is still not fixed. But easy to ignore.
Couldent test the dull lines problem, it only happens in-game (mostly when you have xfire chat open during a game) or are in a dark room in Fallout 3.
i have a vga monitor running on an ancient p4 machine that i use as a workstation, which has a 8mb trident blade3d as graphics card, and the old monitor i'm running with it is set to 75HZ! VGA does not limit the refresh rate to 60.
when the monitor is set to 60 (it's set to 60 by default) it looks ugly and some dull lines show up too, i put it to 75 and it looks perfect back again.
Ahh I just fixed all my problems in 5 seconds...
OPENED MONITOR MENU, HIT "AUTO-ADJUSTMENT" AND BAM! EVERYTHING IS NOW FIXED!
Nice little $75 card!
Havent tested the lines problem in games...I will now!
EDIT: HAHA! NO MORE LINES IN GAMES! AND GAMES LOOK SO MUCH BETTER! Its like..Extreme HD!
