Hi.

That is called artifacting. There are several causes for this, it could be a driver related problem, in which case rolling back to an earlier driver revision may fix this.

It could also be that your graphics card is overheating. Download and run a program called HWMonitor, and keep it running in the background, it will record the temperatures of your various components. Post the maximum temperature your graphics card hits. If it is getting very hot, you may need to ensure that you have proper airflow in your case, that you have enough case fans, or you may need to set a more aggressive fan profile on your video card.

An unstable overclock can also cause artifacting, if you have overclocked your card, return it to default clocks and see if the problem goes away. If it does, that means you will have to apply some more voltage to your card if you want to maintain your overclock.

Finally, if this problem persists across every driver revision, and your temperatures are acceptable, and this happens at stock clocks, you could simply have a defective card, in which case you'll have to RMA it for a replacement.

Thanks for the answer, i have never overclocked this card, (Actually the card is new), i use msi afterburner and the temperatures are 60-70 C. while playing.

60 to 70 degrees is safe, so you aren't overheating. I can only suggest you roll back to an earlier driver and see if that helps. However, with this problem happening on virtually every game you try, this does seem to point more towards a defective card.
