So I recently spent 1600$ on a new build.
I originally ordered a 750i ftw motherboard, and a 8800gts MSI video card.
I sent the video card back because it was broken(I'm sure), and I couldn't make it halfway through 3DMark06 without getting video corruption or some kind of error.
I then got a new EVGA video card, 8800gts, and I ran 3DMark06, again, with problems and video corruption and errors.
So I sent back the 750i ftw motherboard for a refund, and ordered a p5e motherboard. Which I had gotten yesterday.
I then uninstalled 2GB of ram, reinstalled windows vista, ran updates, installed all drivers, reinstalled 2GB of ram.(Was told to do this by SurgeVel because when I ran 3DMark06 without reinstalling vista I was invited by a BlueScreenOD)
I can't run 3dMark06 through all the way without any errors or artifacting with some type of video corruption on it?
Is it another bad video card? This is an example followed by a flickering screen, even though mine looks different, this is just a example I'm using until I get the pictures of mine posted.
I'll post pictures soon as possible.
I'm losing all hope here, nothing seems to work for me. : (
