I just built a new PC with the specs below. I was all pumped up and ready to get back into PC gaming. But I can't figure out this issue with my new MSI GTX560 TI graphics card. When I run 3DMark11 the image quality sucks. The video all static looking, grainy. I do have Virtu MVP install but tried to run 3DMark11 with it disabled, did nothing. How do I troubleshoot issues like this? Has anyone else had static, grainy issues with the Nvidia GTX560?
If it's the free version of 3DMark 11 it runs at 720p, which could account for the graininess if you have a 1080p or higher monitor. Try running a free game demo, or something like http://unigine.com/products/heaven/ and see how it looks.
