Hello there!

Yesterday I bought a new PC (custom made) and booted it up and started downloading the usual stuff, drivers, video games and everything I needed. Everything but my graphic card is new the Graphics card was bought on craiglist (the guy just tested it to see if it works). But after a while this started to appear.

I already reinstalled the drivers and I didn't see it for a while, but it happened again. 

Could this maybe a software problems? Should I reinstall Windows before doing anything such as trying to return the card? The card performs perfectly, running WoW on ultra without issue.

:welcome:   KinoTeka,


That looks like artifacting, have you tried removing the add on video card and then using the MBs integrated graphics, if not, try it and see if the problem is present when playing games etc.


When you post back, can you let us know the brand and model name or number of the PSU.
