Made a photobucket account solely to show this. A few pictures of World of Warcraft, Braid, and Team Fortress 2. It generally stutters a few times, with gameplay remaining normal, but the graphics being all screwed up. Then either the graphics get horrible to the point I can't see what's going on, or the game freezes up, or both.
Everywhere I've asked before has simply said I should try reinstalling and/or updating my video drivers, and I've done that dozens of times by now, and it's never changed anything. My suspicion is that there's something physically wrong with my video card, but I would hate to buy another one only to find out that that's not the problem.

If anyone has had similar issues, or knows of something that might fix this, I would love to hear about it. Thanks!
