Having major problem with my new BFG 6800GT card. Graphics in all my games bar call of duty are messed up (I think there is an attachment with an image showing the error in all its glory). I've re-installed windows, have the latest VIA 4in1 drivers (4.56) and the latest nvida drivers (71.89 or something can't remember) and still it not working correctly. Please help coz this card cost me 300 and im a little pissed off with it at the moment

I am having the exact same problem with my 6800 Ultra.

Any help would be appreciated

just use Rivatune and changed the agp transfer rate from 8x to 4x and it seems to have sorted the problem. Not sure if this is the best sol,ution but hope it helps.

maybe the card is bad?

Looks quite similar to the problem I was having with HL2. My solution was to replace the card- at least so far. My temps are very high though, even with my new card, but I have a feeling something else is causing this issue.

Well, I solved this issue by turning fastwrites off and OVERCLOCKING(just abit) the 3D setting, so it higher then the 2D setting, I heard about this from someone. It worked.
