I run a two year old NVIDIA Geforce 7900GS and play two games, San andreas Multiplayer and Counter-Strike: Source.

In ALL games the game completely messes up and it is black, the textures stretch, trees become magically high the display messes up, finger nails become long. The screen flickers black and FPS drop to around 10, it's completely impossible to play.

The graphics card is fine in Windows, although when I first boot up at the top of my screen there is a few lines going across (white lines)

Is it my gfx card or my monitor? The cable between the PC and the Monitor is faulty, but i don't really care. Just wanna play game.

The flickering etc doesn't happen all the time just sometimes, the grasphics card is NOT overheating and is clean of dirt.

No point looking elsewhere for the cause of the problem till you either fix the cable or get a new one, cos that may well be it.
If it's a non-renewable cable like on many old crt monitors, you'll have to buy a new monitor. But whatever you decide, it's
no good trying to find a cause of your problem when it could be something you are already aware of.

I don't know if it is that, and Im not paying money if I don't know it is ultimately that.
