I am getting the following glitches/bugs in bfv since i have had my 6800GT

I also get the same thing in the Troll's Lair in 3dmark 03 then alot more severly in Mother Nature.

I can play other directx games fine, for hours and these things will not appear.

it has been like this on all of the driver sets i have tried, but the 62.20 has seemed to make it a little better.

Looks like the sort of artifacts I was getting in UT2004 while seeing how high I can overclock my video card...

usually those lines are an indication of too much pressure being on the GPU. are you running the card overclocked?

dropping the core to 340 has made it go away. but the question is, is it a overheating problem or a bad card problem. my case is a microatx size case and the temps under load get up to 50 degrees celcuis case temp and 74 degrees celcuis core.

For the price you pay for a GT you should have 0 problems and shouldn't have to accept downclocking it. If the problem persists RMA it.

Your case may just be so small that the card is not able to properly cool itself, and you're running into heat issues because of it. Take the side off of your case and see if you can run at stock speeds.

If you dont have any valuable reply to make dont bother.

I got those same kind of glitches in Halo after playing for a little while. I turned my core back down to 390 (I had it at 400) and the glitches disappeared. I think my card may be getting a little warm. It gets to about 82 under load. I'll try and stick another fan close to it and see what happens when I put it back to 400.

well with the case off it runs it all fine, so i would say its a heat issue. i can play opengl games and also farcry, tocaracedriver 2 fine with it @ 350 but i have to turn it down to 340 for joint operations bv:f . o well time for a new case with more fans i think.

You could always just buy CardCooler and forget about a new case.
