Ok so I bought this PC a couple months ago and I have a GTX 670 Superclocked card, a i73770k processor, 16gigs of ram and a ASUS P8Z77-V LX motherboard.
So anyways, I was playing games maxed settings and everything looked great and I went into my Bios one day and accidentally reset my BIOS settings, and then almost every game I play looks horrible with maxed settings, I've tried changing the settings in the Nvidia control panel but it doesnt help, heres some examples from the Crysis 3 beta, And Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising, http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=4q5p4&s=6 and http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=scfl3r&s=6 and http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=14xcr9t&s=6 and http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2a9xtat&s=6 The Trees and Grass just look horrible! Please I need help this is so annoying! Thanks.

Go to bios and try setting the ram specs properly.

I'm not quite sure what the proper settings are or how to do it :/

unless you had manually tuned your bios before, resetting the settings shouldn't actually change anything because everything would have been on the default setting anyway... it has to be something else
and definitely has nothing to do with ram settings (timings, voltage or multi)...

Well I have never changed anything in the BIOS before besides change the display to VGA so that it would work on my TV monitor..... Would it help if I said I didnt build it? I picked out everything i wanted on Ibuypower.com and they just built it for me and sent it to me, It has to be something within the BIOS because right after I reset it, thats when everything changed, I even traded out my video card once and it didn't help.

Its worth mentioning that if your setting anti-aliasing through the Nvidia control panel that could be your issue, Nvidia flags pretty much every game out there to take no effect from any AA setting you apply, in some cases its because they legitimately don't work in that game, others probably just because they're being obtuse. Set things through the game itself.

i dunno, doubt it thou, usually any sort of bios tuning would cost extra. And I'm not aware of any bios setting that could change how textures look on games or some such.... and not having played those games I dont know how they should look like in the first place so I really can't see anything wrong with the grass or trees on those screenshots.

Alright then..It just looks like there is no AA or AF in any of the games, the only time the Trees or Grass look good is when i'm like 3ft away from it, trust me its not how the games should look. It just looks all Pixely and Fuzzy, and if you dont know then whatever, Thanks anyways.

Is there anyway it could be my monitor?

nope.
I think it has to be some in-game setting or most likely something in the nvidia controll panel thats messed up. Try re-installing the drivers and set them to factory defaults (I'm guessing there is a button for that, at least in CCC there is, I'm not too familiar with the recent nvidia software...)

maybe the bios reset somehow enabled the integrated gpu for a split second and that in turn confused the nvidia drivers?

It didn't work...Nothing is ever going to work): and what were you talking about the integrated gpu? Do you think there is something I need to fix with that? If so I have no idea how.

I just installed the newest Beta drivers and it didn't help...I really want to fix this but no one seems to know how.
