  1. Ok so recently I purchased a gtx 460 hawk and have been having major problems in my games. I have flickering during different effects in SC2, and major color issues in Rift. Essentially, any game I play has an issue. Here is a rundown of my system

    ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard
    AMD Phenom II x2 555 CPU (Overclocked to 4.1Ghz and 3 cores as 4th was unstable)
    4GB G.Skill Ripjaws DD3 1600 Ram (9-9-9-24 timings)
    MSI GTX 460 Hawk
    Antec Eco Neo 520W PSU
    WD Caviar blue 500GB HDD
    Windows XP SP3 32-Bit

    Ok so heres the wierd part, the issue is temporarily solved whenever I reinstall the graphics drivers but the issue returns after a bit. I would be playing starcraft II and all of a sudden the game crashes and when I open it back up, the issue has returned and I have to reinstall the graphics drivers. My graphics card is not overheating as it is in a very well ventilated case and is running at stock speeds and I have also monitored the temps and they remain very low. I am fairly certain the card is not defective as I have already RMAed one and they simply replaced it with a new one

    Any ideas on what could be wrong?
