Hey guys,

Wondered if you could help me out with a bit of a tricky technical issue I'm having.

I've just built a new PC, and having problems with the graphics in all games.

What happens is that in all games I get weird 'flashing' very often of textures and so on. Here's a video of what it looks like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npF49UFK4z0 (And another, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwRCKn4yXxw)

What I've tried so far:
- Going back to original drivers, trying current Nvidia drivers and new beta drivers. Clean reinstalls (+ driver sweeper) each time.
- Trying card in a different PCI slot
- Using DVI rather than HDMI cable
- Changed fan profile using MSI Afterburner (doesn't look like overheating to me, temps were just at 53C in the above video).
- Messed around in the Nvidia control panel a bit. Set power management to maximum performance, turned all anti-aliasing to application-controlled.

I contacted Zotac themselves and they ended up suggesting I RMA the card because it was faulty. I sent it back to the original retailer (eBuyer) but they couldn't find anything wrong with it. So I'm totally out of ideas. Anything you could suggest?

You should have sent it back to Zotac not the shady dealer you got it from. It sounds like a driver issue or faulty hardware to me.

Well eBuyer are usually good for me (replaced a faulty motherboard within a few days). I'll ask Zotac if I can send it back to them though.

Well, I know nothing of ebuyer, so i will take your word for it. But I call shenanigans on companies that "test" returned merchandise. They are suppose to send it back to their maker.
