  1. LOL ..sorry the pic is funny
  2. it happens in every game thats just one.
  3. What video card do you have? It probably is going bad, apparently BF3 has been killing off a lot of cards lately :lol:
  4. ati radeon 6950
  5. It's usually the 560 Ti's that are the victims. Many 560 Ti users have to underclock their factory OC cards just to stop it from artifacting or crashing while in BF3.
  6. So I guess I have to spend 300 bucks on a new graphics card lol=P
  7. Yeah pretty much lol sorry. If you have on board video or another video card try that first just to be sure. Also, if your card is overclocked or overvolted at all put it back to 100% stock, and maybe even underclock it to see if it helps.
  8. Before you do that, definitely uninstall your drivers, do a driver sweep, and do a full install again of the most recent drivers to be sure. No sense switching out boards and video cards if its just the drivers.
  9. i uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them same problem

    I have the same issues, it is just glitchy software. I have 2 brand new 560 Ti s in SLI, and for a while I ran a single card configuration (all with most recent drivers). I also get color glitches on some items. Searching BF3 artifacts will yield people with similar issues. Just keep playing and if it gets so bad you cant play you just have to restart the game.
