I am not very computer savvy and would like some help if at all possible.

I have reformatted my computer.
Rolled back drivers of all shapes and sizes.
Been doing this for quite some time and I am getting a little irked by it now.

See those weird pixels that are flickering just above my toon? Well it happens alot when playing HD games such as Fallout and Splinter Cell. I do not have the slightest idea what is doing it. I have updated my drivers to everything I think is relevant. if anyone can walk me through some basic troubleshooting I will love them forever.

Hi Vahntra,
Can you provide both the brand name of the GFX card (Asus, Sparkle, Galaxy GeForce GTS 250 etc) and the brand and output of your PSU (power supply unit).
Have you tried using Riva Tuner http://www.freewaref...programid=13538

NB: Your 1st link doesn't work.

I believe the brand of graphics card is PNY
As far as that freeware you linked, I don't really know what I would change in their at all to help my problem.

PSU- BFG Tech - 450 watt
