Hello, I currently use a Sapphire AMD Radeon 6950 dirt 3 edition graphics card. Lately I have been having this weird issue where with a few of my games they mess up and give me his weird off centered rainbow like effect. It does not do it with all my games but only some, putting the games in windows mode fixes it, and going back to my desktop fixes it as well execpt when using windows media center which can sometimes bring the effect to my desktop, does anyone know what is causing this issue? It goes away if i close out of the game, run the game windowed, or if the effect is on the desktop, goes away if i launch a game. Here is what it looks like.

I currently use Windows 8 64 pro edition, this issue did start back when I was on windows 7 with Hawken and Red Orchestra 2, now has persisted onto battlefield 3 and shogun 2, all other of my games work fine " Mass Effect 3, Skyrim, Borderlands 2 Swtor Guild Wars 2"

i would try that hd 6950 on another system this must be happening when you stress the card on games check you fan if it spin correctly and there is no dust or overheath on the card.

Yes I did try it in that order. I am going to try dusting it later since it's about that time to clean dust out anyways hopefully that helps if not I will try and place it in another computer. I'm noticing in all the pics I submitted the picture is not centered like it should be. Can heat cause that?
