  1. I'm getting textures stretching all over the place...artifacts as well.
    the only way to fix it is to alt-tab. and it only fixes for 5 mins or less...its really annoying.

    Geforce 6800
    1534MB of RAM
    Intel P4 2.6Ghz
    330WATT power supply

    average temp while playing games is 63.
    when not playing games...50-55

    oh, one thing i probably should have noted...when i bought the card i was a little "stupid with computer components" around christmas time.
    i didnt notice it required at least a 300W power supply.

    i had a 160..until the end of febuary, it was doing the texture stretching thing.
    my power supply finally rotted away ><, so i saw it required 300, so i bought this 330..the only one i could find that fit in my system. and now it seems like its worse, could i have messed up my video card? is there any way i can tell?

    12v dc rails might not be as strong enough as you're old PSU. Like I said get an upgrade 400-500 watts.

    Like I said before Antec is you're best bet.

    Best of luck.
