Hello, I recently built a new computer (my first ) but I have been getting these greenish/purple pixels that clearly aren't supposed to be part of the picture. Everything works fine with this computer so far except for these "artifacts" that show up when I play the following games I have: TF2, NBA 2k11, Call of Duty: Black Ops and BF: Bad Company 2. I play a 2D game and it runs perfect (no artifacts). I also noticed these pixels in Photoshop CS5 when I would zoom out of a picture but I have fixed this by disabling OpenGL (someone told me to do that and it's worked so far). As far as I know, the games I play don't use OpenGL so I don't know what to do about that. Like I said, when I'm not playing those 3D games, I don't see any artifacts. I hope you all can help me.
I've had this computer for a month and a week (so I don't think I can RMA to newegg ). I always thought I got these pixels because of bad drivers or something but I have reinstalled them and everything (and I have used driver sweeper in safe mode). Maybe I am doing something wrong here. I was thinking maybe the RAM has something to do with it because when I first turned it on after I built it the RAM wasn't recognized by the motherboard so I couldn't see anything on the monitor. I fixed it by changing the RAM to another two slots and it worked. I hope you all can help me, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.
