In that SS it looks to me like the artifacts are from the card and the drivers. I had this exact same artifacting in other games when I had overclocked my card too much, I think on the the memory. The first game that this ever happened to me was RtCW with my GF3

Update:

United Offensive players,
after i installed nHancer, and forced openGL 2.0, and openGL "general compatibility" it runs 10x better!!! it stutters a tiny bit once in awile, but my fps never drops below 75 fps. that's my max refresh at 1600x1200. give it a try. the game is playable once again
Tried to do this as well as add the driver extension limit value 11A8 and it still stutters. 97.92 drivers also did not help at all. I am getting really ticked here.

At least I isolated the problem now. The issue is with "dynamic lights". As soon as I turn off "dynamic lights" the game plays perfect. Any idea how to fix it, as I like to have dynamic lights?

Just an updated I posted in the 97.92 driver thread.

The below games have been fixed with the 97.92 (for me anyway -- I was using the 97.44s before these):

Splinter Cell Double Agent works with the high detail shader on
Halo
Painkiller
UberSoldier
Oblivion seems fine (I say "seems" b/c I can't always get it to mess up even when using the older drivers)

These issues remain for me:

Call of Juarez shadow issue
Blood Rayne 2 (washed out, menu completely messed up)
** Gothic 3 shadow issues when SLI is enabled (works fine in single GPU mode)

** someone posted a potential fix for the SLI issue in the driver thread but I haven't had a chance to check that yet.

Edit: Solution for Gothic 3 is to use 80001 as the SLI Mode. Thanks Grestorn, for the tip.

That's all I've checked so far.

Sensible Soccer is horribly corrupted. All characters artifact and take up most of the screen as triangles and other distorted geometry.

Marc Ecko's Getting Up. Similiar issue. The main character's hair is the only part of his body that is visible. No other characters visible.

Spiderman 2, Sensible Soccer?? These are the type of games CNU students are playing these days!? Don't you have any games you didn't get out of a cereal box? That does it, I'm not sending any more money to CNU.

Man, this is total BS, even with the Dynamic Lights OFF, it does not fully solve the game's problems. I played for several hours today and the stuttering was still there.

HAHA! You had me rolling with that one.

You send money to CNU? I hope you like all the new buildings its buying... (No sarcasm if you sent some for the Madison fire. In that case I and my girlfriend thank you)

I've told you guys before I have a lot of budget games. And its not even that I'm really that anxious to play them. The main thing is that they are a great test as to see how polished a driver is.
