Hardware EXPERTS please read: regards to 6600GT
I have an eVGA PCI-E 6600GT 128mb. Everything works fine.. untill I get Guild Wars and BattleField 2. I install Guild Wars first, and everything works great. I install BF2 and it has some flickering.. So I get the newest driver.. it works great now.. After a while of playing BF2, my screen starts to flicker non-stop.. as with Guild Wars, as well. Now I've tried everything for about a week with everyones suggestions, nothing works. Video card tech, game tech.. all the support, nothing works.
Heres what I think happened. Oh, and by the way I can play Starcraft fine.
What I think::
I think that (I don't know the physical parts of computer for the ****s, but this is all I can rationalize with) my video card has a 2d and a 3d processor (different things, processors, areas of computing, w/e) and since Starcraft is 2d, it works fine. But everything in 3d, such as my 2 new games, don't work because I fried my 3D part.. Sound right???
Another thing to add.. When I change the display settings to high, I get littler triangles of the flicker.. when I set to low... just huge boxes flicker.. What I'm thinking is that at high display settings, there is more computing going on, therefore littler areas to make it look better.. as in higher resolution.. and when lower display settings.. less resolution, therefore the huge boxes??
Does this seem right to you? If not, please explain to me what the problem is!! I can still send in for an RMA, but it'll cost a few bucks for shipping.. I'd rather make sure I'm right as well!! Please, if you don't know what you're talkin about don't post on this one..!! it's been bugging me for.. 2 weeks now.. only can play Starcraft omg its annoying!!
Thanks so much for the help!!
