This is a weird issue. I have a Biostar K8VHApro and when I had it on 8xAGP it would give me horrible line artifacts protruding from models in the game, it was really noticable in Tribes:V and MoH:PA Demo but once I set it to 4xAGP all the issues went away.

I was about to RMA my card thinking it was faulty but now I don't know if it is. It could be my Motherboard but I currently don't have another PC to test it out on.

Anyone ever see this type of issue? Would the AGP settings prove that that card was not at fault? Really don't want to RMA the card due to my card being a great OCer! :)

Im currently using the newest VIA Drivers.

With 4xAGP, I don't have those issues.

Looks like heat artifacts to me. I got the same lines in MOH:PA when my core was overclocked to high.

Problem is it doesnt happen with 4xAGP, but at 8xAGP even at stock I would get them...

I had this problem once with MOHAA. A bios update and an install of chipset drivers finally fixed my prob.

Do you run XP SP2?? And are you having a VIA chipset based computer??

Kind Regards Vyper
