All my games were running fine and then suddenly I get this problem with all my games. Texture appear blurry in the distance and the edges of objects flicker in the distance as well. Also in games such as shogun 2 or napoleon total war trees and the grass can clearly be seen flickering.

Things I've tried to do to fix it
1. Format computer with win 7
2. Format computer with win xp
3.Install newest drivers
4.Install older drivers
5.Try a different monitor
6.Playing with different graphics options

All seem to fail and I still have the same problem. Can anyone suggest a way to fix this?

Cmon guys can anyone help me. I was thinking maybe its a Z-fighting problem. The thing is erverything was working fine and suddenly I get this problem so I'm thinking that maybe theres something wrong with my graphics card physicly. Is there some diagnostic test I can run to see if my GPU is working fine?

use driversweeper to uninstall all traces of drivers following all the instructions to do this properly. Then install the most recent drivers that work. if that doesnt work you have a faulty vid card.

I have tried just about every suggestion but I get the flicker problem with the 4870x2 also. I will never buy another ATI product. But in the meantime, I can run Shogun 2 and Empire Total War without flicker if it's run in windowed mode - even at 1920 x 1200. Very strange.
