  1. Ok its been happening for a while first on my gefore 8500gt 1gb, there was white pixels showing up all around certain images on games like need for speed, neverwinter nights etc, I then bought a geforce gtx 260 and thought it would solve the problem however I still cant run games like C&C, NFS on full gfx without it seriously slowing down, and the card has real trouble handling old style games like legend of mir, I have to turn all gfx options of for that game.

    I am runnning a 600w stealth modular psu, dual core processor and 2gb ram.

    You may have malware issues. Scan your PC for any spyware\adware using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or any other anti-malware app. What antivirus software do you use?

    What resolution are you playing at?

    1024x768 if 1280x1024 slows it down.

    The only other thing that can be causing the slowdowns (beside malware) is your HDD.

    Are your chipset and video card drivers up to date? Do you have the latest version of DirectX?
