Hello everyone,
I am having some weird issues with my screen. I ran furmark to show you what I mean. Sometimes in games that I play spikes as shown below appear ( for example in Hitman Blood Money the arms of the main character go through the floor).

My question is, is there any help for this or do I need to change the graphic card?

Much appreciated

thats called artifacts and 99% of the time its video heat. Depending on the card, you can increase the cooling and in alot of cases you can turn the clock speeds down just a hair. Some think thats crazy but i prefer stability over 3-4 fps more anyday.

What card do you have?
