White Pixels on Edges in Games

This is my first post, so sorry if this isn't in quite the right section.

This is a problem I've been having that drives the ocd in me crazy.

Basically, in every game I have as I move around, I'll see white pixels flash along edges and crevices of some game objects and most terrain. Often times there will be enough of them to form whole lines along the edges. I don't think it's induced by hardware stress, as even Diablo 2 isn't safe from this minor, but aggravating annoyance.

The thing about this problem though is that:

A: It doesn't affect everything in the game. For example, In Skyrim, the interior instance of whiterun's gate will exhibit this problem quite noticeably. However, the exterior side will not.

B: the pixels will disappear if I look at any other angle or get close enough; Though in most cases the removed pixels will be replaced by others.

C: I don't get any other kind of artifacting outside of games.

Another thing I've noticed is if my character or an object is in front of some kind of visual effect (heat distortion, smoke, certain lights etc.) there will be small black dots of roughly equal distance from one another along any part that is aligned with the effect.

Turning off Anti-Aliasing so far has been the only (albeit, only 95%) solution. But that's not really a solution, I mean, I have a gtx 680, I'd like to be able to put it to work. ;) 

I've also used AA in the past fine, so I don't think it's the only solution.

another thing is that I have tried two different cards (both nvidia, the other one was a 570) and the problem still persists. Makes me wish I had an ati card just so I could see if it's some kind of driver issue. (Which I have tried uninstalling, driver sweeping, re-installing, mind you.)

I've been scouring google for almost a month, every link to have even a vague relevance with the subject is purple now and I still haven't found a solution, please help?

Here's my dixdiag just in case it's helpful:

Could you please put all that in a spoiler box?

I think it's normal to see those white pixels in skyrim. I have them too (AMD card). I don't know. It never borthered me too much.

I did put it in a spoiler box at first, but all It did was make an equally sized white box you had to click. :\

I understand that in some games (in skyrim especially) you'll see crevices in the level design, but this is different. I know for a fact I haven't had this problem before.

I first noticed it on whiterun's gate, and anyone who plays skyrim will tell you you see that gate a lot. Also, it's happening in every game I have, not just skyrim.

It would be helpful if you could provide screenshots. I have a GTX 680 too and never got any "dots". Check if you are not forcing ambient occlusion on the game, as it is not supported.

Are you familiar with ENBSeries? It works awesomely in Skyrim and might solve this issue since it renders the game differently.

Didn't see that on a 670.

I did cry a little when I read that you're driving a 1360 x 768 screen with a 680. That's like using a nuke to kill a fly. :(  On the plus side you'll never have to worry about low fps. Ever.

^ Yeah, lol. It's actually a tv, and my Fios will display 1080 television fine, but the pc seems to insist I use 1360x768. Anything above is just downscaled.

@Murissoka,I did try enabling AO for some games just to see what improvements it'd give, but I've since turned it off. No, I haven't tried enb, but I'd like to stress this isn't exclusive to skyrim and only recently started.

Anyway, heres some screenshots. (Just please don't tell me I'm crazy :pt1cable:  , as they might be hard to see. It's really something that's best seen in motion.)

Crysis; look on the lower area of the fence, if you're into Ispy, you might notice that there's some in the foilage too: http://i786.photobucket.com/albums/yy144/IAMMIKE321/cry...

Skyrim; The inner right part of the door. Moving around the door will cause to appear in various other spots: http://i786.photobucket.com/albums/yy144/IAMMIKE321/TES...

Something from morrowind; this is one of the few instances where these rogue pixels aren't white.: http://i786.photobucket.com/albums/yy144/IAMMIKE321/Mor...

Did you ever think that this could be the tv...causing these?
You should be playing on a true 1080p screen to get the best out of that card...
February 7, 2013 3:44:51 PM

I have thought that, but the only monitor I have only takes a vga input, and I don't have any adapters.


I can say the screen is not an issue. I borrowed a vga/dvi adapter and I'm still getting the problem on a standard computer monitor.
