Default Graphics Problem gone from bad to worse

hey... i posted b4 that my graphics were developing lines after some time of game play... after not being able to slove this, and the card being in its box for over a week, i decided to pull it out and try it again

Now, when i play, all i get is warped lines all over the screen.

I can submit a screenshot, as when i take one, and paste it into photoshop, the image comes up normal.

What is happening here... im goin insane over this card

Try to turn down the video acceleration and see if it clears it up.It sounds like your monitor cant handle the vid card.Is it an old monitor?

I've replaced several Nvidia cards that had this problem.

They were much older than yours though (TNT)
