So i have this awful problem with ALL video cards in my current set up, firstly i had a 4870 512mb ddr5 which locked up on me every 5 mins, so i borrowed a 8600GT off a friend to replace it, but it seemed to artifact every 5 minutes putting the wrong textures in all the wrong places, for eg. i could see random spell thumbnails for spells across the ground, or even on my character in WoW, so i thought *** it and bought a GTX460 today but it does THE SAME thing as the 8600GT...
current set up is:
e8400 Dualcore @ 3.2Ghz
3gb Corsair Dominator 1066MHz Memory
Corsair 650w PSU
with my GTX460 which is also giving me nasty artifacts and putting the wrong textures in the wrong places, ive done NO O/C'n what so ever, and is running at a cool 38-45
running XP SP3
i have suspected the mobo, the ATI just locked up and gave Recovery errors?, the 8600GT is the EXACT problem as the 460. rang my mate who i got the 8600gt off and he said straight up, motherboard. so im going to take it into my trusty mates down at a local cusom build shop and ask them for an hour or 2 in there workshop and a lend of a few 775 mobos, thanks for reinforcing the motherboard suspect
