I've noticed that recently (About a week) My 3D games have been acting VERY strange....

I get black spikes going across the screen that appear and disappear seemingly at random... They happen more often if I do not move the camera.

Also, I noticed in CIV4 that the mini map doesn't show terrain at all but some sort of strange pattern... This is happened recently (Yesterday)

I haven't been able to catch one of the triangular spikes... (They are very hard to predict so i can't print screen)

If you need any information please just let me know...

This is very recent, and nothing i can think of has changed... I keep all of my drivers updated, and i have tried reinstalling directx 9.0c... I also tried reinstalling CIV4 but it didn't work and i didn't find it worth it to reinstall spore...

Please, this is very annoying and I think if I keep having to watch these spikes i might have a seizure...

I managed to capture it on Spore.. It was palying perfectly for a while, but then it just started spiking and it was unbearable. :
