Yeah, I ran Rivatuner in the background and the max temp was 67 C, so that's fine. Also, that's the only game that happens on. Every other game I own runs fine, and all of the benchmark programs as well. I mean if it was some big problem like a burned out card, I think it would show up on 3DMark05 since that program is so intense for the GPU.
Here's the kicker. I ran the CS:S stress test with all settings on high and 4xAA and 8xAF, and got 89 fps. And also, when I play it online against actual people I can play 4xAA and 8xAF and it runs perfectly smooth. The choppiness/artifacting only happens when I play offline and create a server and play again bots for practice. It's the weirdest thing in the world, I can't figure it out.
