Hey guys, just joined, and I'm experiencing an odd problem with my GeForce 9600GT (or so I believe it's a GFX problem). For some reason, when I am playing a game, my game freezes for about ten seconds, then all of the graphics in the game go haywire. Below is an example of what happens in StarCraft II:
Now, I've also had it happen to me in Team Fortress 2, but not nearly as frequently. They usually are worse than the above image, with everything messing up (in TF2 I'd have enemy players showing up as completely black, as well as my own team turning completely blue). I don't have a screenshot of it, but if it happens again, I will grab one. Older games such as Diablo II and StarCraft I don't do it, but these are the only other two games I play as frequently as TF2/SC2. At first I thought it could be artifacts, but I thought artifacts were something completely different.
The rest of my specs are as followed:
Windows XP SP3
AMD Athlon X2 5000+ (2.61 GHz)
2GB PC6400 DDR2 RAM
Asus M3A78 Motherboard
Seagate 250GB HDD
Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
