  1. That is rare and does it only happen in that one game? That is distortion caused by driver (very very rare but possible) or the GPU its self.

    OK then it is not the card but you may be out of luck when it comes to that one game. You could either wait till drivers improve or a new patch for the game. If you can't wait then you have other last option and that is to purchase a spare card and I had to do this once when I couldn't find a working fix.
  4. so im getting enough power and its not the card or the psu? Thanks for the answer.

    I was playing alpha protocol btw and this is my psu it came with the case

  5. Hahahaha LOL you got to be kidding right? That isn't a 400w psu as it is junk and may only be a true 250-300w unit max at best.

    you dont gotta go for the jugular :(
  7. I would certainly trash the PSU and pick up a true 400w PSU (or more) w/ a high efficiency rating from the vendor of your choice. *cough*Newegg*cough*

    Let me be honest I have learned the hard way. The best tech support is one that has made and learned from mistakes. These crap psus are not worth the money spent on then and the really cheap ones are the worst. Like shorting out on the pcb or hot spots that alter the color of the pcb and some times bad caps ect.
