Hey guys. I got an Xfx geforce 6800 GT. But while playing games I see wierd things.. First of all, my system specs are

p4 2.4 gz
1.25 gig of ram
geforce 6800 gt with forceware 61.77

Anyways I get wierd poles spiking out of models. here are some screenshots from counterstrike source. I got the same defects in aquamark. The video card, is brand new and not overclocked. I dont know how to explain it really, so just look at some screenshots:






It runs at around 60 C while playing

I am really desperate as I dont really wish to RMA this, as I ordered it from the state (i am in canada). ALso do u guys know how to disable fastwrite in windows? (i already disabled it in the bios, I want to disable it in the drivers too)

Thx for ur help

I have no idea. I was getting artifacts in Doom 3 (exact same card) until I turned my overclocking down.

but my card is not OC at all...

How do I turn off fastwrite? My friends said that could be it

This happened to me once with MOHAA. I believe a bios flash on my MB corrected it. Hope that helps.
