  1. hey i have been having problems with my graphics and not sure what i should do at this point.

    my motherboard is an abit fatal1ty an8 sli
    Processor:
    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+, MMX, 3DNow (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz
    Memory:
    2046MB RAM
    Hard Drive:
    250 GB
    Video Card:
    NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX
    Monitor:
    Plug and Play Monitor
    Sound Card:
    NVIDIA(R) nForce(TM) Audio


    the problem occurs most times while running counter-strike source or day of defeat source, and sometimes in world of warcraft. the issue is lines that jump around on the screen. i tried to get a screen shot but the best i could get was off other player's models in CS.

    i tried to get the latest nvidia drivers but the lines are still there.

    this is the strangest thing I have seen, when I look at the pic. it looks normal, I see no lines.

    you cant see the lines coming off the other character model?

    see if you can see them in these

    Have you overclocked the card?

    If you've upped the FSB of the CPU, maybe the PCI bus increased too.
    Set it on 100 {Thats what it is on my board, someone tell me if I'm wrong} in the BIOS.

    Good Luck

    ok well im pretty sure this is not the problem :mad: i reset the cmos, checked all the rates, went to play and the bug still occurs. its quite frustrating and i have no idea what to do.
     
  6. btw.. did you update to the latest driver? Certain set of nvidia drivers, they tend to cause problem for certain combination of hardware. You might want to play around with the drivers... try different sets.
