Recently, I've been having a lot of weird problems with my video card.. eVGA 7900GT... not overclocked.. not using any tweak programs etc.

But, in WoW and CoH the games I mainly play, I sometimes see images "bleeding" across the screen.. Not sure if thats the correct term for it but.. here's a screenshot of my WoW... if you look at the image, you can see lines coming out which bleed into the picture..

I've tried installing and reinstalling pretty much all the drivers availble but that thing is still there.. I thought it might be because overheating the GPU, but.. i checked and it shows 51C during heavy gaming.

Anyone else have this problem and know how to fix it?

I've seen spikey polygons like that when the ram overheats. I'd try underclocking your video ram by 20 mhz or so.

Looks a bit like artifacting to me. Usually heat or defect related. Hows the cooling in your rig?

open up your case and run it without the cover on...also check to see if the cooler is sitting properly on the card.

...and if the fan is actually running or not.
