Default Graphics Problem

Hi, i just got a 7800GT a few days ago off of an eVGA RMA. (i RMA'ed my 6800GS and they gave me a GT yes!) but, when i play battlefield 2, sometimes the terrain kind of flickers and doesnt show up in some spots. i updated my drivers and it still happens. could it be my PSU? (Thermaltake 430w) i know the min req. is a 450 watt PSU and i plan on buying a new one, i was just wondering if that was for sure the issue or if it was something with the card?

Thx

Hello,

Does this happen in any other games?

Usually when this happens, it's a sign that the GPU is overheating.
