Hello all,

I recently put together a new computer. Specs below. However, I'm having one major problem. In every game or benchmark I get graphics/textures twitching/shifting/flickering at random times. I've tried running different drivers beta, whql, and non-whql. I messed with the AGP Aperature size, etc. I'm really out of ideas and would appreciate the help of this community. I've been a long time reader, and now first time poster. :) This graphics twitiching also happens within XP w/ SP2. The side blue menu just twitches when browsing through folders or gets mis-aligned/garbled/missing pieces. It really happens at random times. Recently I was playing Fary Cry and it was unbearable as the textures just kept shifting from one place to another. Flickering was noticable in Battlefield Vietnam, etc. Running latest patches also. I did have a GeForce 3Ti200 in this system before the GeForce 6800GT and the same problem was there. :( All hardware is brand new.

AMD Athlon XP 2800+ at 400fsb 2.2Ghz (35C idle, 42C load)
GeForce 6800GT (stock)
Abit NF7-S v2 (Nforce 2)
Latest drivers for nforce/card
Latest bios

Thanks in adance.
