Hi i recently got assassins creed 3 and far cry 3. The problem is the image in the games looks very poor. I put all the environmental details in AC3 on very high and far cry 3 on very high but those games still look very edgy. The draw distance is also a huge problem. When i play AC3 the trees appear in a pixel like drawing.If you take a look above Connors left shoulder at the tree you can see the pixels or whatever that is called.


Is this a sign that my gpu is dying. Also this happens with far cry 3 also. The exact same issue. But if i run it in dx11 its not that noticeable. But in DX9 that gets very worse
I heaven benchmark and 3D mark vantage. It run fine without errors. Could it be the game or is it the GTX 460.
My System:

CPU: i5 2500K Stock.
Ram:8 G ddr3
GPU : GTX 460 1G cyclone
Windows 7 64Bit sp1.
GPU Driver: Ver 310.70.

Dx 11 provides much better visuals, but demands much more performance.

It's the games, they're probably optimized poorly for dx 9.

I can't really see too much wrong with that to be honest.

Try EVGA's artifact scanner and see what happens.

Thanks for replying so quickly. Its just those 2 games that gives this problem. Hitman absolution runs fine. But its really annoying to play the games with that effect.

Looks as it should. There's nothing wrong with the card. It's game flaws.

Glad someone else thought so.

My eyes aren't that bad.

That picture isn't showing what happens when you are running around. Especially when inside a city. But that was the easiest to take a picture of
