It's not in every game, but it's only in full screen games. If I launch something windowed, it works with no problems.
I've tried rolling back drivers and using beta drivers, to no avail.
I also just got my GPU back from MSI today, after RMAing it. My previous card had this same issue, as well as random crashing(which is what I actually RMA'd the card for, but I was hoping it would fix this too)
My framerates are fine in all the games that I play, as are my temps, so it doesn't have anything to do with overheating.

I had a similar problem with my old 6870 and it turns out it was a problem with my HDMI cord/possibly port. Try using a different cable and getting rid of any possible dust that is in the port.
Thanks man. I had the wrong email address linked to this account... so it took me until recently to find out anyone had actually replied. I purchased an HDMI to mini display port adapter, as the HDMI port on the card was the issue. Everything is working great now. Thanks!
