those "dots" are called artifacts

usually this is cased by overclocking, driver issues, or faulty hardware.

if its the latter, then you are pretty much screwed, otherwise, you could try to download the latest graphic driver for your card from nVidia, which is Beta 257.15

thanks man, im looking in to the issue, i restarted the PC and everything was back to normal, it seems that what's causing the issue is some crash on BFC2. The problem occurred during a map switch loading screen. When i tried other games after re-boot the GPU performed just fine. This is crazy now i increased my FAN profile on the EVGA PRECISION to 70% and Case fans to MAXIMUM> lets hope this works.
