    P.S. it's from MSI so people have told me that it's been tweaked or some **** but please can someone help me out.

    that screenshot looks horrible. go to msi's website or call them and they should send you a new one for free. of course you have to pay the 5 bucks to ship it back, but no big deal for an expensive card.

    i asked if vertical sync was turned on, because it can cause problems with video not being displayed properly, but i dont think it would make your game look that horrible. your card is beyond a doubt, going bad.

    it could be overheating as well. you could at least get some more life out of it "maybe" by cooling it off. take the side of your off and leave it off, and run a small fan right next to the card.

    All you need is the serial number off the card to RMA it.

    Do you think that this damage could have been caused by me or is there a defect in the product.

    If you haven't overclocked it, and have had it for a year, it's probably the card. Try calling MSI or something, they should be able to help (they do have warantee's I would think). Oh, and what's the point of calling someone a "dope" as in your previous post?

    Try and look under the card, or on the heatsink. I know that my 7900GS came with a serial lightly tapped into the back of the card (I took it off though). God, I'm in the middle of installing it now :hotbounce
